As if Gary Numan and Hedwig and the Angry Inch had a child with Ziggy Stardust. It's complicated.
The singularity known as Ariel Pink is instantly recognizable but in many ways impossible to genre-tize. As if Gary Numan and Hedwig and the Angry Inch had a child with a Ziggy Stardust fixation but couldn’t afford to buy him good recording equipment (you’ll see, he really is just like that), his recordings are so low-fi one might mistake them for tracks from an '80s foreign film. Sort of dark wave yet psychedelic, his exact musical designation may be hard to tack down, but watch as hipsters sell out his shows with expedience. With R. Stevie Moore and Silk Flowers.
