Leave it to Ariel Pink, master of lo-fidelity disaster, to go all Alan Parsons Project just when the sounding-like-a-transistor-radio movement he helped launch is about to crest. We've been massive fans of Pink's since first hearing "For Kate I Wait" in 2004, so needless to say the new direction this hints at is more than exciting. "Round and Round" will be out as a limited 7-inch and digital single April 26th on Pink's new label 4AD, with the new Haunted Graffiti album following this summer. The single's cover is a drawing of a dude French kissing a fox or small coyote, hard to tell.
