There are very few artists who can put out a new video for a five or six year old song and get us to post it. Ariel Pink is one of them. “Gray Sunset” is a song off The Doldrums, an album which Ariel explained as “really weird in the sense that I don’t know of anything—historically speaking—that is predicated on a generation of mistakes that led the course to a final product,” in Issue 27 of The FADER, and we gotta say that it still sounds as strange and mistakenly great as the first time we heard it. The video was shot and edited by Travis Peterson in LA last week on a 1983 Sony tube video camera and debuts Ariel’s new androgynous look which oddly looks like a genetic splicing of a couple people in this office.
