#14. Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti - Only In My Dreams (3:11)
Even though it’s filled with trollish anthems about being a nymphomaniac and odes to his favorite type of sausage, Ariel couldn’t help but drop at least one incredibly lush and sincere love song on his new album. But wait a second, is it really a song about finding true love? Or just dreaming one up after things don’t go so well in the real world? “Only In My Dreams” finds Ariel’s voice spilling out from behind itself on one line and then accompanied by an amber washed chorus on the next Meanwhile sad, surf guitars and tambourines hang around for moral support.
Best Moment: Probably the chorus where Ariel’s sad, but hopeful, stream of consciousness revelation feels like the ocean’s waves softly lapping at our feet.
The Album [Mature Themes]: 8/10
