Song of The Day #044

"Round and Round" by Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti

I've always had kind of a "I think he's cool and respect what he's doing but don't actually love the music" type of attitude towards Ariel Pink. And his many years worth of tape-hiss-y experimental pop indeed warrant respect--but "Round and Round" warrants much more than just respect. Composed of various sonic chapters or suites, it meanders around glossily before finding itself in its chorus: a rousing hook-y gem. It's schlocky, it's overwhelming, and it's a damn great song that I felt I needed to give credit after sleeping on it earlier this year.
