The NYC Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti show set for May 4th at Mercury Lounge is sold out. Have no fear - there's a full North American tour coming this summer. Pearl Harbor and True Panther Sound's Magic Kids open the tour (the Merc Lounge show is opened by R. Stevie Moore). The tour comes to NYC's Irving Plaza on July 24th. Tickets TBA.

Ariel Pink's first record on 4AD, Before Today, comes out June 8th. The song "Round & Round" is reposted above, and will be out as a limited edition 7" (with "Mistaken Wedding" on the b side) and digital download single on April 26th.

What a strange album. Goes from totally lame to pretty awesome and back. But I guess they have the indie cred to pull totally lame off.

ALL OF HIS ALBUMS ARE LIKE THAT BUT WHEN THEY'RE GOOD THEY'RE GOOD, THERE'S ALWAYS THE SKIP BUTTON FOR THE ONES YOU DON'T LIKE

How could someone not get down to Round & Round. Hater or not you gotta admit that song is an absolute stone groove.

Glad to see him having R STEVIE MOORE open up for him. If only RSM would tour!
