Mature Themes by Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
Released: Aug 2012
Label: 4ad
Anyone familiar with Ariel Pink's repertoire should take Mature Themes' title with a gigantic grain of salt. "Kinski Assassin" references "testicle bombs" and "blowjobs of death"; Schnitzel Boogie" sounds like a Beach Boys track flipped inside-out in a post-Oktoberfest haze. "Step into my time warp," he offers on "Is This the Best Spot?" It's the album's most accurate statement: Pink's gift for retro jamming is still stunning, as on The Byrds-esque "Only in My Dreams" and the hypnotizing groove of "Driftwood"; the Donnie and Joe Emerson cover "Baby" has every bit as much soul as the original.
