Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
An uneven but nonetheless charming collection of miscellaneous tape recordings from the king of the sequined gutter himself. Sacred Famous was amassed from bits of tapes made around the same time as House Arrest and while, some of the scraps may well have remained hidden there are certainly enough gems in this to make it worth checking out. Pink, ever the master of using the lack of studio as an instrument (kind of the Anti-Eno as it were) wields tape hiss in deadly fashion and obscures pop trappings in debris thick enough to make you think these tracks were dubbed 7 times over on mix-tapes before they saw this collection. The sheer deterioration can be a bit much to handle start to finish, but squeeze a few of these into a mix for a friend and its an instant classic that begs a question of origin.
