The debut print publication featuring L.A. songwriter Ariel Pink – whose influence on the underground music scene in the last decade is unequivocal – forms the first career-wide survey of his lyrical output. The songs included in this compact little book span the entirety of his recording oeuvre, comprising a compendium of the artist's recurrent themes, fascinations and forays into lyrical abstraction and experimentation. As the namesake suggests, Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti carries the notion of defacement at its core. Exploring this range, Selected Lyrics provides transcriptions of classic material, as well as several pages of lyrics in their original handwriting, a reproduction of an unseen drawing by Ariel Pink and a discography in the index.
