On September 16, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffitti will be playing at the Jackpot. Pink’s breakthrough album, Before Today snuck up on us this summer, but it truly is one of the top albums of the year. The Beverly Hills lo-fi junkie has been experimenting for years, but his newest album finally finds him honing his pop sensibilities and crafting an epic pop/prog/lo-fi masterpiece. Below I’m posting two Ariel Pink songs, one is from an earlier album, the second one is “Round and Round” a re-worked and much improved version of the former. Listen to them both and see how gleans the catchiest elements from the first to create what I feel may be the best song of 2010. And don’t forget to check out Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffitti out for yourselves on September 16!
