Record Label: Mexican Summer
Los Angeles's prodigal songwriting son Ariel Pink shares his eleventh studio album, Dedicated to Bobby Jameson, September 15. The album's title makes a direct and heartfelt reference to a real-life L.A. musician, long presumed dead, who resurfaced online in 2007 after 35 reclusive years to pen his autobiography and tragic life story in a series of blogs and YouTube tirades. ''His book and life resonated with me to such a degree,'' Pink states. ''That I felt a need to dedicate my latest record to him.''
