Ariel Pink: Loverboy LP
|Availability:||Out of stock|
Loverboy was released in the middle of Ariel Pink's prolific run of albums as Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti. Written and recorded between October 2001 and July 2002 (a creative burst during which House Arrest was also conceived), Loverboy is a wonderfully warped portrait of Ariel's musical world building. On Loverboy, Ariel Pink conjures some of his most memorable melodies and intricate arrangements under the spell of his trusted 8-track cassette recorder. This definitive version of Loverboy was transferred from the original tapes, expanded with unheard tracks, and remastered as part of Ariel Archives, Mexican Summer's reissue series which revisits Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti catalogue with new editions of out-of-print releases.
Releases in the Ariel Archives series will be expanded to contain much of the original material left off prior reissues that were made available in the mid-2000s and are now out of print. The first installment begins with Underground, Odditties Sodomies Vol. 2 (a long-awaited second volume of outtakes and non-album tracks), and finally Loverboy. Releases in Ariel Archives will not follow a chronological sequence, though the first installment starts at the beginning with Underground.
Vinyl 2LP-set comes in printed inner sleeves. All art designed by Ariel Pink. Pressed at RTI. Download card included.
