Considering that lo-fi, analog psychedelic pop has burst open into such a sought-after genre, it’s a wonder there are not more artists as forward thinking as Ariel Pink. The eclectic, LA-based artist and his Haunted Graffiti just launched a U.S. tour, with a stop at The Chapel in San Francisco on Tuesday, May 21st. If you haven’t been to The Chapel yet, this is a good time to check it out – what better sounds to fill a vaulted-ceiling’d, church-themed venue than some neon weirdness?
Last year’s Mature Themes isn’t exactly a brand new album, and though the show is certain to contain at least a few songs from the record, Ariel has announced that the band will be playing material from the whole catalog on this tour, a sort of greatest hits set.
Below check out the beautifully (and intentionally) low budget video for “Only In My Dreams”.
