Before Today (2010), by Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti is BANGING, it is the definition of cool. Listen to Beverly Kills or Round And Round for a taste of it.
This record has such soul and groove it's impossible to do anything but spin and spin when it's on. It's the kind of record you wish could be a more than just a record, it's a way of life.
Before Today feels like walking down suburban America in the early '80s and running into a bunch of kids fixing a DeLorean in their garage. It is retro in the best possible way, at times reminding me of early Clash and at other times classics such as Black Or White or Billie Jean.
