Now Playing: Menopause Man Session: 003 / Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti / VSAD003

Ahead of their debut release for 4AD (worldwide from June 8), Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti appear in session with a number of tracks from the forthcoming Before Today alongside recordings of the likes of 'Flashback' and 'Spires in the Snow' (incarnations of the latter dating back as far as 1999).

Recorded at Studio Plateaux on the Thameside island Platts Eyot, the session showcases the band's rich pop palette; a beguiling mix of glam rock, West Coast funk and Merseybeat harmonies with a newfound high-production sheen - a contrast to the corroded bedroom recordings that have fomented a fervent cult following over the past decade.

The outfit, now consist of reclusive pop surrealist Ariel Pink (vocals) alongside Tim Koh (bass/vocals), Kenny Gilmore (guitar/vocals) and Aaron Sperske (drums/vocals) - with Cole MGN (guitar) guesting in session. Haunted Graffiti tour worldwide this summer, with a full list of dates available HERE.

Track Listing:

  1. Menopause Man
  2. Spires In The Snow
  3. Little Wig
  4. Flashback
  5. L'Estat (According to the Widow's Maid)
