Ariel Pink has said some things lately that have made a lot of people mad. But whatever you think about him as a person, his music is pretty great. On “Black Ballerina,” the latest track released form the upcoming pom-pom (out Nov. 17), he’s in a typically raunchy mode, crafting bargain-bin synth-funk with bits of ephemeral dialogue about strip clubs interspersed.

L.A. dreampop duo Tashaki Miyaki have a new Covers EP on the way, produced by Joel Jerome. Here, we find them lending their cloudgazing ways to a classic Prince track. Hear it via Stereogum. Look for them on the road with Allah-Las this fall; they’ll be at S.F.’s Brick & Mortar Dec. 10 and L.A.’s El Rey Dec. 11.
