Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti made their television debut last night on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon. Though the group's lo-fi approximation of classic AM pop isn't exactly the most mainstream sound, it's sort of surprising that it took this long to get them on TV given that they are so fascinating to behold in their shabby, shiny, colorful attire. Band leader Ariel Pink is especially transfixing, looking more or less exactly like Kurt Cobain if the grunge icon had lived long enough to go through a thrift store glam phase. His voice is a bit wobbly in this rendition of their single "Round and Round," but it's nevertheless a very memorable performance.
