All right, one more jam before I go to sleep and this is saving the best for last here with LA’s Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, consisting mainly of Ariel Marcus Rosenberg and newly-signed to 4AD (click through, sign up to the APHG newsletter and download ‘Round and Round’ for free y’all).
More about Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti (via 4AD):
Los Angeles’ notorious lo-fi pop oufit Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti have been unveiled as the latest signings to 4AD. The group are currently recording their first record for the label, due spring 2010.
With roots going back as far as 1996, the West Coast act are as sublime as they are surreal with a sound loaded with hazy nostalgia and a fiercely experimental pop palette. The band (currently comprised of Ariel Pink, Kenny Gilmore, Cole M.G.N., Aaron Sperske and Tim Koh) have picked up particular plaudits for the Haunted Graffiti releases via Paw Tracks, The Doldrums (2004), Worn Copy (2005) and House Arrest (2006).
