@placebo_molko your attitude. it stinks. now you've heard the music and if you like the band you should totally show it by supporting the artist. I'll show the way - gonna buy the Blue Screen Life LP reissue that comes out on record store day 2016 [gonna be my 1st Pinback vinyl :) ]
shadrach_451 either i never would've heard their music or i pirate it. If he and his band can't think of a way to make money with the internet it's their problem. The game is changing, not my fault, or anyone's
Nice, placebo_molko, very apt comment to have be the last thing to be said here at the moment when Rob Crow announces that he's quitting music because it's not financially sustainable for supporting his family. I feel like there is something darkly poetic about that.
it was so sweet to see these boys play a couple of weeks ago in dallas. i bought rob crow a whiskey on the rocks, and forgave my extreme awkwardness andhe was quite lovely. i've always loved them, but damn. i just stand in awe of their musicianship. ever since the show, i've fallen into this deep obsession of listening to them more and more. fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck. this is music.
Oh man, guys. Guys. Don't miss "Grey Machine". It's hidden at the end of the Offcell EP, and it's possibly Pinback's magnum opus. 11 minutes of masterful music. I'm a huge Pinback fan, and some how I almost missed out on this song. Don't mess up guys. This is important.
sometimes i can't bring myself to call these dudes "indie rock" since they just have this indefinable quality that permeates their music and separates them from so many other bands out there. if that makes any sense. PS ETE and MTB? FTW.
Would you consider playing in maui when you come to the hawaiian islands? venue arrangements would be easy and you can sleep on my couch. I promise you turtles and waterfalls and beers in return. please, please. its incredibly rare to have such an awesome band come all the way out here.
So many great songs from Pinback: Devil you know, From nothing to nowhere, Fortress, Off by 50, Blue Harvest, Walters, Barnes, This red book, Good to sea . Great band, good soothing music. Love the vocal work.
all of their albums are pretty excellent imo.. the first two + nautical antiques have so much personality what with the tinny drum machines, soft vocals, quirky lyrics, insane bass work. they sound a lot more like a fully fledged band now, theyve kind of abandoned the two dudes jamming to roland drum machines in a bedroom aesthetic, and i think theyve made the transition just fine. information retrieved is a great record, i actually think its a better piece of work than autumn of the seraphs, so imo theyre still going as strong as ever.
play that one later. they've launched their antenna claws. called in a favor while you're choking on their tentacles. you're falling asleep. don't look behind the curtain. you're falling asleep. look in the spinning line.
