- Before Today
- Artist: Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti
- Format: LP
- Release Date: 6/21/2010
U.S. vinyl LP pressing. 2010 release. Six months in the making, Before Today was recorded in part in Encino at the House of Blues (once Tito Jackson's home studio) with Sunny Levine (Quincy Jones' grandson) and Rik Pekkonen (Bill Withers, Seals & Crofts, Bread) as well as at the band's home studios. The result is a beguiling mix of Glam Rock, West Coast Funk and Mersey beat harmonies with a high-production sheen; a contrast to the corroded bedroom recordings that have fomented a fervent cult following over the past decade. 4AD.
