Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti “Round and Round” from Before Today 4AD (2010)
Listen to “Round and Round” MP3
The track “Round and Round” is the captivatingly curious single from Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti’s latest influence-spanning release Before Today. “Round and Round” is a real change-up groove. Lo-fi vocals and instrumentation set the groove, breaking it up with smooth choruses reminiscent of summers past. The track retains the best elements of a home-recorded feel, with the lightest of production touches.
The DIY cult-character himself Ariel Pink heads-up the group, joined by Tim Koh on base and vocals, Kenny Gilmore or guitars and Aaron Sperske on drums. Now through October, the LA-based band will be hitting the road and playing a slew of dates across North America. Check the band’s MySpace page for tour dates (including 24 July in NYC at Irving Plaza).
