Ariel Pink Announces New LP ‘pom pom’

Ariel Pink returns with a new double album for 4AD on November 18th, entitled pom pom.

Ariel Pink returns with a new double album for 4AD on November 18th, entitledpom pom.

Across its 17 tracks and 69 minutes, pom pom is unfiltered Ariel, a pied piperof the absurd, with infectious tales of romance, murder, frog princes and Jell-O. The record sees the Los Angeles native strike it out alone, returning to the solo moniker he has adopted well over a decade ago when cementing his name as a king of pop perversion.

From demented kiddie tune collaborations with the legendary psych producer and pop prankster Kim Fowley (songs like ‘Jell-O’ and ‘Plastic Raincoats In The Pig Parade’ were written with Fowley in his hospital room during his recent battle with cancer), to beatific, windswept pop (‘Put Your Number In My Phone’,’Dayzed Inn Daydreams’), scuzz-punk face-melters (‘Goth Bomb’,’Negativ Ed’), and carnival dub psychedelia (‘Dinosaur Carebears’).

“Although this is the first “solo” record credited to my name, it is by far the least 
“solo” record I have ever recorded.” – Ariel Pink
