Ariel Pink is backed by his new band, Added Pizzazz for this new EP. Lead track “In The Heat Of The Night” is another unexpected twist to Pink’s sound. Here his band’s backing saxophone and trumpet, along with the tuneless vocals give it the song a seasick sway, as if everything goes out of sync or slows down for just a second, before it catches up and heads into a two-note melody. It’s disconcerting, but highly listenable too.
