Ariel Pink shares 13 of his favourite records, taking in albums from Ata Kak, The Shaggs and John Maus amongst others


Ata Kak - Obaa Sima
This is a really obscure record released on Awesome Tapes From Africa. Ata Kak made this dance record in the early 90s that was just great. It’s so unreal. One of the things I love most about it is the percussion and the drums, they’re so repetitive. And the rapping is just great too. Dude it’s just the best. I love the Ace of Base-ness of it.
