A fixture in Ariel Pink’s band, and a seasoned noise experimentalist in his own right, LA’s Tim Koh throws a delicious curveball here with offbeat, wonky pop partly inspired by his terrible record of accidents and ill-health. You have to admire a man who can turn his hospitalisation for a ruptured ulcer into the magnificently spirited ‘The Stomach’, and ‘Please Don’t Go’ is the sound of lovelorn summery heartbreak. Fans of Eno’s pop experiments, ‘Loaded’-era Velvet Underground and, indeed, the woozy psych of Pink himself will find lots to love here.
