Ariel Pink – “Put Your Number In My Phone” + pom pom Details

Ariel Pink has left a deep impact on the brains of an entire generation of indie musicians, and he’s released eleventy billion albums since he started doing lo-fi home recordings. But he’s never released a record under the name “Ariel Pink”; most of the time, he’s been “Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti.” That changes this fall when Pink releases a new album called pom pom, the follow-up to 2012’s Mature Themes and the first one released under his own stage name. Pom pom is a double album — 17 songs in 69 minutes — and Pink paradoxically calls it “by far the least ‘solo’ record I have ever recorded.” According to a press release, he wrote two of its songs with Kim Fowley, his ancestor in bugged-out L.A. psychedelic weirdness, when Fowley was in the hospital for cancer. First single “Put Your Number In My Phone” is a soft, jangly come-on that features what appears to be a voicemail of a girl asking Pink out. Below, listen to it and check out the pom pom tracklist.
