Biography

Los Angeles, United States

Ariel Pink (born Ariel Marcus Rosenberg on June 24, 1978) is a Los Angeles based / musician. Pink boasts a cult following and endorsements from more widely known artists such as fellow founding Paw Tracks group Animal Collective.

After years of recording in relative seclusion in the hills of Los Angeles, Ariel Pink (the first non-Animal Collective member on the Paw Tracks roster) made his official Paw Tracks debut with The Doldrums. Recording at home with a guitar, bass, keyboard, and 8-track (the drum sounds were created with his mouth).

Ariel Pink blends Lite FM and warped into something by turns beautiful and confusing. Some may find his personal yet detached approach highly addictive, while others may be instantly turned off by the obvious production and the vocal drumtracks.

In the summer of 2003, Pink passed a CD-R on to New York based band Animal Collective after being introduced by mutual friend Jimi Hey (of All Night Radio and Beachwood Sparks) at one of their shows. Unbeknownst to Pink, Animal Collective had recently started their own record label, Paw Tracks, and several weeks later they contacted him expressing an interest in releasing his music. Pink became the first musician on the label aside from the members of Animal Collective. The next year, the label reissued The Doldrums, an album which had been originally recorded in 1999. Since then, Paw Tracks (now co-owned by Carpark Records) has released two other reissues of Pink’s previous recordings, Worn Copy and House Arrest.

    Damn Ariel, didn't you know that messing with Madonna's fans is worse than being attacked by bunch of flesh eating zombies?!

    I remember when his website was this obscure looking HTML maze with neon background and Times New Roman font. He was also selling his grotesque hand drawings there for $10,000. Weirdest trip I never had.

    Annoying: his work as Ariel Pink scrobbles (thru auto-correct) as Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti. 'Pom Pom' (out 17 November) is *not* a Haunted Graffiti album, but a solo record under the moniker Ariel Pink! Different things!
