Ariel Pink has left a deep impact on the brains of an entire new generation of indie musicians, and he’s released a pretty hefty amount of albums since he started doing his lo-fi home recordings. But he’s never released a record under the name “Ariel Pink”; most of the time, its been “Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti.” That changed this last year when Pink released a new album called Pom Pom, Its the follow-up to 2012’s Mature Themes and the first one released under his own stage name. Pom pom a double album with 17 songs in 69 minutes — and Ariel 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. The first single that appeared was  “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.
