A few years ago the band HEALTH created a mix-tape of songs for Music Is Art that included the band Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti.  After one listen, it was easy to be hooked. The way their lo-fi sounds attribute different freak folk melodies of pain, lust and anxiety. It’s everything you want from a west coast band, the overall music feels as if certain nostalgic elements belong in a golden Polaroid from the 1970s, while their hazy choruses melt into nothing but grand memories.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
