Politely Declined

I think I make up a little ground here though.

Does anyone else see a resemblance, aesthetically and just in general shamanistic awesomeness, between Ariel Pink and LRSN? (You’ll notice that Pink lists his genre on MySpace as “Melodramatic Popular Song.” Who that’s read it can forget LRSN’s classic “On Melodrama”?)

Pink is a fuzzy condensary of American garage pop, like LRSN contains the whole face-off between orality and the grapheme in even his casualest pieces.
