Different voices for you, different colors for me. With 2011 being the year of Ariel influenced bands coming out of the wood work or changing direction entirely to fit the mold, I’m left being half intrigued by the new sounds being produced but also somewhat feeling like disappearing back into the mix of lost outsider tracks that inspired the sound from the outset. Robert Rental quickly comes to mind as a source of inspiration for these new dark synth wandering artists. His 1980 seven inch Double Heart has been on constant repeat again the past few weeks and I’m sure any fans of Ariel Pink or Outer Limits Recordings would appreciate this track. It’s as danceable as it is slank around a cold flatable, which is quite a feat in itself.
