Ariel Pink :: Round and Round

Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti announced recently a Nov / Dec tour co-headlining with Brazilian Tropicalia legends and psychedelic pioneers Os Mutantes.  This is in addition to previously announced tour dates this Fall with another band of kindred spirits, The Flaming Lips – as well as a handful of headlining Haunted Graffiti dates.

Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti’s 4AD debut record, Before Today, consists of twelve tracks (including the single “Round And Round”) and was released worldwide on June 8th 2010 on CD, LP and digital formats.

Six months in the making, Before Today was recorded in part in Encino at the House of Blues (once Tito Jackson’s home studio) with Sunny Levine (Quincy Jones’ grandson) and Rik Pekkonen (Bill Withers, Seals & Crofts, Bread) as well as at the band’s home studios. The result is a beguiling mix of glam rock, West Coast funk and Merseybeat harmonies with a high-production sheen; a contrast to the corroded bedroom recordings that have fomented a fervent cult following over the past decade.

The outfit now consists of reclusive pop surrealist Ariel Pink (vocals) alongside Tim Koh (bass/vocals), Kenny Gilmore (guitar/vocals) Joe Kennedy (guitar) and Aaron Sperske (drums/vocals).
