Outside of deep music circles, Ariel Pink was just a whisper till his hit single “Round and Round” in March 2010 with the band he had assembled, Haunted Graffiti. That feel good tune, all summery disco stabs over a pleasantly meandering beat with multipart harmonies, marked Pink out in the same territory of the popular New York groups MGMT and Animal Collective. Pink brings his new gang with him to Tokyo to treat audiences at Sibuya O-Nest to live, cleaned-up versions of the mixed-tape sound he long mined. At its best, you could be enchanted on the 25th — besides, you know, there are worse ways to spend a Tuesday night.
