Los Angeles’s prodigal songwriting son Ariel Pink and his band return to Australia this November to perform songs
from forthcoming album Dedicated to Bobby Jameson (out September 15 on Mexican Summer via Rocket) and the
singular body of work Pink has created over the first two decades of his career. Ariel Pink has today unveiled shared
“Feels Like Heaven,” a lovelorn insta-classic playing tribute to the promise of romance.
Dedicated to Bobby Jameson’s title makes a direct and heartfelt reference to a real-life Los Angeles musician, long
presumed dead, who resurfaced online in 2007 after 35 reclusive years to pen his autobiography and tragic life story
in a series of blogs and YouTube tirades. “His book and life resonated with me to such a degree that I felt a need to
dedicate my latest record to him,” Pink states.
Dedicated to Bobby Jameson begins at the end and ends at the beginning. “We follow the protagonist through a
battery of tests and milestones, the first of which sees him reborn into life out of death,” Pink explains, referencing the
opening track, “Time to Meet Your God.” “From there, he seesaws his way between the innocent love and the
rock-solid edifice of childhood-worn trauma that together constitute his lifelong initiation into the realm of artifice and
theatrical disposability.”
Ariel Pink’s previous solo release, pom pom, received a Best New Music designation from Pitchfork; The New York
Times described it as “a delightful, typically schizophrenic collection: wickedly dark and funny one moment, sweet and
sentimental the next, and at other times as gleefully unhinged as Pink has ever been.” SPIN noted that it’s a record
“full of unforgettably kaleidoscopic melodies.” Pink has prolifically written, recorded and released his singular brand of
pop music for well over two decades. Dedicated to Bobby Jameson sees Ariel Pink returning to the setting of his first
recordings: his bedroom.
Raised in Beverly Hills, Ariel Pink started out as a visual artist before becoming a recording artist in the late ‘90s while
attending Cal Arts. Though critically misunderstood at the time, Pink’s early, lo-fi recordings wielded an enormous
influence with insiders and outsiders, including Animal Collective who signed him to their Paw Tracks imprint in 2003.
In the late 2000s, Pink’s fortunes with critics began to reverse, and his resulting single, “Round and Round” (off Before
Today), was named the #1 Record of 2010 by Pitchfork.
