Stream 'Mature Themes' by Ariel Pink, playing Seattle Sep. 26
Above is a stream of "Mature Themes," the new album by Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti. The whole thing's great, oddball pop music. Of special local interest is the closing ballad, "Baby," a cover of a song by Donny & Joe Emerson, from Fruitland, Wash., sung by Dam-Funk. Listen by clicking on the widget above, via the Guardian.
Ariel Pink performs in Seattle Sep. 26 at the Crocodile for Decibel Festival, with Dam-Funk and Bodyguard, aka child-of-the-'90s James Ferraro. "E-Cig" is below, a half-dead hip-hop highlight from Bodyguard's underrated "Silica Gel" album. Grab a full download of that here.
