By Alex HudsonLast year, Ariel Pink mapped out a handful of projects that he would be sharing in 2012, including a collaboration with fellow lo-fi recording guru R. Stevie Moore. Now, the details of that album's physical release, entitled Ku Klux Glam, have officially been announced.
A cassette version will drop on April 30 through Stroll On Records. A mere 100 copies have been created, each with a fold-out poster, so you might want to act swiftly and order one here.
This follows last month's digital release of Ku Klux Glam, which contained a whopping 61 tracks and is available as a $29 digital download over on Bandcamp. A 144-minute double-CD-R version is also available to order from Bandcamp, and double LP is planned as well.
The new cassette version contains just 20 tracks, and a press release notes that it is a "sampler of the Ku Klux Glam catalogue."
The songs are "split between flowery pop, obtuse electronics and warped lyrical leaning," resulting in a collection that is "disorientating and incredibly fun." You can listen for yourself at the bottom of the page.
