Ariel Rosenberg, bka Ariel Pink of FADER 68 cover fame, stopped by NPR's Philadelphia studios of WXPN to share some insightful thoughts on music making and play a couple songs for their "World Cafe" series. After Ariel kinda shocks the NPR dude by saying, "The goal is to get rich. What else is there?" he jumps into "Every Night I Die at Miyagi's" and kinda shocks us with how much his voice resembles that of Girls singer Christopher Owens. Right? Just a little bit. Then he does one of our favorites from Before Today, "Bright Lit Blue Skies" and now we are just listening to the full 14-minute piece on repeat.
