Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti 5 "House Arrest" (2006)
LP (NEW) - Mexican Summer, US, 2020, MEX271, 184923127119, 2xLP, Remastered, Stereo, Incl. Additional Tracks
Originally self-released in 2002, House Arrest is riddled with an antic, self-reflexive energy. The album's opener "Hardcore Pops Are Fun" makes it clear, House Arrest is exuberant, supercharged - an upshift from the melancholia saturating its predecessor The Doldrums. But House Arrest is not just a change in tone from alienation to joyfulness; the album shuffles through countless modes and styles from conventional pop arrangements to wild, deconstructive experiments. Perhaps the signature "Haunted Graffiti" album, House Arrest is a self-portrait of Ariel Pink's mad descent into the creative abyss, a manifesto for musical outcasts with headphones on.
