Ariel Pink "Dayzed Inn Daydreams" from pom pom

Today (January 26th), Ariel Pink's video for the song "Dayzed Inn Daydreams" was published online. The song, culled from the LA artist born Ariel Marcus Rosenberg's acclaimed recent 4AD album pom pom, is the latest single off the album and the newest installment in the ongoing series of videos directed by LA-based filmmaker Grant Singer for Ariel's album.  It follows videos for the pom pom tracks "Put Your Number In My Phone" and "Picture Me Gone," and continues their themes of focusing on the stark and dismal mundane aspects of the everyday life of hard working Americans (lots of cigarette smoking too) with Rick Wilder (Mau Maus) playing the central character in the video (also features a brief cameo of Ariel bumming a ciggie).

"It's the story of a man, played by Rick Wilder, who was once the frontman of a band that existed decades ago. Through a series of scenes depicting his everyday life, we tell his story," explains the director the third installment in the pom pom series.

You can buy the album at Amoeba in four formats: digital download, CD, cassette,  and vinyl. Meanwhile, upcoming US concert dates include Bimbo's 365 in San Francisco on February 7th, Terminal 5 in New York City on February 25th, and at Burgerama at the Observatory in Santa Ana on March 28th and 29th.
