After beginning the series with Underground, Odditties Sodomies Vol. 2 and Loverboy, the archival journey continues with Worn Copy, The Doldrums and House Arrest representing Ariel's most classic recordings as Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti, the name used for his one-man recording venture between 1999-2004.

Strange fires glow across The Doldrums, Ariel Pink's youthful masterpiece of primal, home-recorded pop music. Before its first wide release in 2004, Ariel Pink had submitted the album as his undergraduate thesis at art school. The brand-new sound looked back to a bygone era of melancholic songs loaded with melody and songcraft, delivering a template for what became the unprecedented sounds of Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti.
