Comment: the 00s has certainly been a great decade in discovering new music. Devendra Banhart, Animal Collective, The Caretaker, Cagey House, slept., Serena Maneesh, Eureka Brown, Tim Hecker, and of course Ariel Pink, the amazing maverick whose music had denied classification both in terms of styles/genres and musical epochs. Honestly, I do not like very much what Ariel Pink would have been doing in the 10s but he is still one of the most enchanting creative forces within the indie scene. But I adore Orphan Stamp's self-titled outing which reflects upon the early period of Ariel Pink though adding a special, idiosyncratic touch to the whole. And 11-notch release is an instance of contradictory impulses at the first glance where faint, and even introverted lo-fi dodges are variegated with highly expressive and hovering glo-fi/hypnagogic pop appearances. Secondly, the whole consists of austere yet highly catchy compositions (for instance, the magnificent River) being juxtaposed to more more chord involving extraterrestrial space pop songs. Truly cloudless developments are represented over there which unfortunately cannot otherwise be met in natural state of a human being's life. In other words, misty, even murky corners are eventually lighted up with highly intense sunbeams as if spending your time in the middle of a forest island filled in with natural play of glistening rays and grayish shades. Behind the project is Karl Frank who had previously released under his own name and under a Swedish imprint, redstarcommunity. Purely golden gem.
