Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti announces Fall tour

Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti’s 4AD debut, Before Today, came out sounding a bit different from what we last remembered. Having said that, first released single “Round and Round” set the scene early for one of summer’s better records. I like this album because it mixes it up and doesn’t remind me of lame kids and typical indie rock redux at all. There’s some art there, assuming pop music is art. Before Today was recorded 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.
