Ariel Pink Digs into the Vault for First FF>> Vinyl Release

Ariel Pink Digs into the Vault for First <i>FF>></i> Vinyl Release
Ariel Pink is a completist's nightmare. Along with putting out albums through labels like 4AD and Paw Tracks, the lo-fi master has self-released countless records, many of which are still commercially unavailable. One of these many releases is FF>>, which was initially issued as a double album along with Scared Famous (the two albums were later compiled onto one album, also called Scared Famous). Now, FF>> has received a standalone vinyl release via Gloriette Records.

The material on FF>> was recorded in 2000-2001, and originally came out on cassette. The new double LP version will mark the first time it has ever been available on vinyl. It contains three tracks co-written with mentor (and home recording pioneer) R. Stevie Moore.

Gloriette Records has previously released albums by other Los Angeles-based lo-fi acts Puro Instinct and Nite Jewel. FF>> will set you back $22 (U.S.), plus shipping and handling.

Thanks to MBV for the heads-up.
