Ku Klux Glam

Since a collaboration between Ziggy Stardust–era David Bowie and Pink Floyd–era Syd Barrett will never happen, this is easily the next best thing. The unfortunately titled Ku Klux Glam boasts an impressive 19 songs centered on the creative relationship between R. Stevie Moore and Ariel Pink. Moore is a decades-long pioneer of home-tracked outsider pop, while Pink is an admitted disciple who has taken similarly lo-fi apartment recordings into hip new realms. “Dutch Me” sports muted Casiotone beats, as Moore’s scratchy tenor and Pink’s falsettos seem to poke fun at “The Sun Always Shines on TV” by the Norwegian pop band A-ha. Pink attempts to get inside Moore’s head on the murky “R. Stevie's Brain,” which plays like an outtake from his 2004 album with Haunted Graffiti, The Doldrums (more so than the lilting acoustic guitar and piano instrumental “Haunted Graffridgerator”). The duo ramps up the fidelity on the clearer-sounding “Come My Way,” a surfy slice of sunny indie pop. “Chasing an Echo” is a beautiful standout that balances Pink’s lounge-punk with Moore’s agoraphobic garage rock.
rock & roll man xD
Awesome collaboration! Really enjoy this album, especially the track, "Dutch Me." If you like to listen to Ariel Pink on shuffle, definitely add this album to your collection.
