Song Of The Day – “Round and Round” by Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffit

22 Jul

What can you really say about Ariel Pink other than the dude is pretty strange. I’m almost convinced that his on stage meltdowns are just part of his schtick at this point. Either way the guy makes some intriguing music that is full of unexpected twists and turns. He sort of reminds me of a cross between Kurt Cobain and Frank Zappa. However that works.. The video (with the really bizarre/creepy intro by Wayne Coyne of the Flaming Lips) helps to maintain Pink’s image of an artist pretty much on the brink of insanity.


New Album Release – “Unknown Mortal Orchestra”

21 Jun

Unknown Mortal Orchestra...in all their glory.

Earlier this month I posted the song “Thought Ballune” by Unknown Mortal Orchestra. This was one of a handful of songs released on their EP. It’s a good sample but I want the whole meal. Today we can rejoice because today UMO release their eponymous debut. These guys have a psychedelic, funk swirled sound that manages to sparkle even in the confines of it’s lo-fi recording. Definitely in the spirit of Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti. Check out “Thought Ballune”  Then when you’re ready for more buy it on iTunes
