Ariel Pink – Pom Pom – 2xLP
Ariel Pink – Pom Pom
Pom Pom (stylized as pom pom) is the tenth studio album by American recording artist Ariel Pink, released on November 18, 2014 through 4AD. It was his first release credited solely to himself, and his last on 4AD. Several of its songs were co-written with the ailing Kim Fowley, who died the following January.
Among direct influences on the album, Pink cited the Mothers of Invention, the Cure, and Todd Rundgren. The songs “Jell-O,” “Plastic Raincoats In The Pig Parade”, “Sexual Athletics”, “Exile On Frog Street”, and “Nude Beach A Go-Go” were co-written by Kim Fowley, from his hospital bed for Pink to perform. The album also features vocal contributions from French singer-songwriter Soko; Pink returned the favor by co-writing and guesting on two tracks off Soko’s second studio album, My Dreams Dictate My Reality (2015). The track “Nude Beach a Go-Go” was also recorded by American rapper Azealia Banks. This version of the song, produced by Pink, appears on Banks’ debut album Broke With Expensive Taste (2014).
