UPDATE (April 29, 2020): Ariel Pink and record label Mexican Summer have returned with the thoughtful compilation known as Ariel Archives Retrospective Cycle 2. The three-part project revisits Ariel’s The Doldrums, House Arrest and Worn Copy, each restored from original cassette masters and featuring new recordings of bonus material.

After the initial announcement of limited runs of exclusive double LPs, the latest Ariel Archives installment is now available to stream across multiple platforms in its entirety. The release comes complete with two more visuals in “Gray Sunset” from The Doldrums and “Crybaby” from Worn Copy. Stream them full project below and watch the new coinciding music videos.


ORIGINAL STORY (March 18, 2020): Last summer, record label Mexican Summer revisited Ariel Pink and Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti‘s most iconic releases through the thoughtful and incredibly thorough Ariel Archives project. The comprehensive series debuted new reissues and retrospective compilations with the first release featuring Loverboy and Underground alongside rare, never-heard-before mixes and stems in Oddities Sodomies Vol. 2.

The second installment, Cycle 2 will revisit Ariel’s The Doldrums and House Arrest presented on double LPs for the first time, as well as Worn Copy each releasing April 24 via Mexican Summer. In honor of the upcoming reissue, the influential singer-songwriter has debuted a new music video for “Alisa.” It’s a visual inspired by 80s infomercials, intercutting some live footage from his personal archives with trippy graphics thrown in for good measure. It follows his recent music video for “Crybaby” directed by Leilah Weinraub and Ryan Kuhlman.

Ariel Archives Retrospective Cycle 2 features recordings painstakingly restored from the original cassette masters as well as original material that never made the final cut of previous reissues. The latest wealth of material coincides with a new Ariel Pink website featuring photos, graphics, and links to purchase vinyl releases as well as freshly remastered recordings.

Watch “Alisa” above and stay tuned for more Ariel Pink offerings from Mexican Summer throughout the year. In more music news, Amazon has stopped accepting physical music releases like vinyl records and CDs as the company focuses on prioritizing essential goods and services during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.
