Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti will make its network TV debut on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon on Weds. Jan. 19, performing the single “Round and Round.” The song, and the band’s 4AD LP Before Today were praised frequently in year-end lists wrapping up the best music of 2010. As you can see above, Ariel recently had an infamous appearance in the tabloid rag STAR Magazine! Immediately following the Fallon taping, the band heads off to tour Japan and Australia.
“This is music that gets over on its astonishing level of craftsmanship, which is something no casual Ariel Pink fan accustomed to his blown-out home recorded lo-fi output over the last decade would have expected from him in a million years…And in the end, “Round and Round” succeeds brilliantly for the same reason great Burt Bacharach songs work– because every chord change and turnaround and melodic leap is in exactly the right place.”
– Pitchfork, who named “Round and Round” the #1 song of 2010
