Favorite Song Today: Velvet Davenport, “Get Out”

If you’re a fan of Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti or are curious to hear what all the hype is about surrounding the forthcoming album Before Today, you have to wait.  But in the meantime, you can:

A. Go buy all the old Ariel Pink albums.  (You should do this)

B. Go seek out the Velvet Davenport 7″ SHDWPLY Records.  It features Ariel Pink and Gary War making music that sounds more like old Ariel Pink stuff than what you’re going to hear when Before Today comes out*. (Do this also)

Listen: “Get Out” by Velvet Davenport

*That’s not to say Before Today isn’t incredibly good and worth purchasing when it comes out in June.  I’m going to use this time to predict that it will be the soundtrack of the summer.
