Review: Arial Pink's Haunted Graffiti - Round and Round 7

Normally I wouldn't bother to review a single, but when it comes to Ariel Pink I believe there's cause to declare credit where credit's due. 

Pink (along with his Haunted Graffiti cohorts) is literally the godfather of a lo-fi industry, pushing out his crazed fractured and shimmered constructions on anyone keen to listen to them from as far back as 1996. Maligned in some of the more prissy corners of the indie world for his avant garde idiosyncrasies, Ariel Pink has been popping up in and around masterpieces from more understanding disciples of his craft for years - from Gary War's NewRaytheonport to John Maus' Songs, he's assisted the formation of a technically and mentally challenging form of pop music that's far outweighed the chart-topping luminaries of artists with more production and PR dollars that he's ever even imagined.
