Ariel Pink is like the Mozart of pop. If he was better looking for the art hoes (and didn't have lyrics that liberals despise), he could singlehandedly define modern indie pop music. Nowadays, all the good looking young artists that are writing indie music all sing about the same shit; smoking, girls, sex, young love, being sad, etc. (Boy Pablo, Clairo, gus)

It's a shame Ariel Pink doesn't even feel any passion for writing music anymore, only doing it to get by.

weird, i'm a huge liberal but i absolutely love his music. his lyrics and views while sometimes questionable don't seem to come from a place of malice so i don't mind them

you're probably just projecting

also isn't a lot of Ariel's music about sex/young love/girls etc lmao

but i agree on your statement of Ariel being the Mozart of pop though

Yeah, Ariel releases an album every couple of years every time he runs low on money. He really only exerts about 50% of his talent in his newer albums, which is still significantly better than most pop artists nowadays. If he were to commit all his energy to writing a full fledged passion project, then we'd have a modern masterpiece on par with pet sounds.
I was on a music discord server with a few trannies, they all hated Ariel Pink for being homophobic and transphobic.

"I could have been a Bobby Jameson. (Fame) is a state of mind. I don’t find it precious anymore, I don’t even romanticise it. I only make music because it’s a job. It’s been stripped of its romantic quality. I record very infrequently"

"My shit is like a chore, the side projects are what I live for. This is just work to me, and people don’t get it."

Pom Pom is such a pop masterpiece
Best song? white freckles, or Life in L.A.
I love everything about his music: his taste for catchy hooks, sweet pop, weird campy voices, etc.
he's still going strong, even after +20years of releasing albums, Bobby Jameson was really great. His EP with Weyes Blood last year was shit tho

sometimes questionable
HOW?!

What's wrong with your ears? That entire song is amazing. The last song where he does a fake English accent is pretty good too.
Weyes songs were kinda boring but shes still a genius

"Jesus Christ Came to Me in a Dream" clicked for me today

The title + the opening lines are very offputting, I didn't realize there was a great hook in there

Zachary Thompson

alot of his songs are like that at first. A Tomb All Your Own sounded like gargled noise.

Hunter Gomez
Hunter Gomez

he's got a great ear for hooks and knows how to produce them well. a lot of his schtick is lifted from obscure 60s and 70s pop / rock groups. people who call him a genius don't realize where he's taking from. definitely a really talented guy, but his biggest talent is an ear for what to take from where, nothing he's done is original or groundbreaking.

baby is a cover

shut up

he's created plenty of great original melodies of his own

Ryan Mitchell

a lot of artists have great melodies, what made ariel famous is his presentation of them, which was lifted from obscure pop albums from decades ago

Reminds me David Bowie, who also just treated music like a job and was really good at it

uh yeah i know, does that make it immune from criticism?

Hudson Walker

nothing those artists did was "original" either, nothing is.

everything, EVERTHING comes from something.

yeah yeah this is a shit quote but it's true: "good artists copy, great artists steal"-some hoe. not saying ariel stole anything but the best artists out there know exactly what to steal from their influences and mold them into something new.

Everything before Before Today is full of unlistenable material with a handful of totally great songs, so when I think of Ariel Pink the majority of his output is a bit soured for me just because of my personal tastes. I think Before Today is his first album that I can listen to all the way through and not want to skip a single song, and I've heard everything before it so don't think I didn't give every LP a shot.

I think Ariel has a great approach to music in general, but the majority his output isn't for me.
