Ariel Pink, Purple Pilgrims

JAY HORTON
8:30 pm, Thursday May 23 | $15 advance, $17 day of show.
Wonder Ballroom
128 NE Russell St.
 

[SUPER-FREAK FOLK] A creature of cultish legend, Ariel Pink's cassette-strewn lo-fi career path appeared particularly ill-suited for a mainstream splash before a switch of labels from Animal Collective's Paw Tracks to 4AD forged a whole new clarity and, subsequently, a wider audience. Mature Themes, the former Ariel Rosenberg's umpteenth release and second album offering a relatively approachable showcase for the singer-songwriter-provocateur's wanderlust creativity, benefits immeasurably from crack backing band Haunted Graffiti. Though the instrumentalists' funk grooves ache to bring the party, Pink's wryly shambling live presence remains resolutely unpredictable.
