Hailing from San Diego, pinback is a band comprised of two principal players: Armistead
Burwell Smith IV (Zach) and Rob Crow. Pinback started as a part-time endeavor back in
1998, When Zach's band 3 mile pilot went on an extended hiatus and Rob found time
away from his other musical interests (mainly thingy and heavy vegetable). After
recording their self-titled debut, released by ace fu in 1999, Pinback became a fully
realized project.
The next few years saw an increase in Pinback activity. In 2000, Tree Records released the
ep Some Voices, and Ace Fu released Pinback's second full-length, blue screen life, in
2001. Between record releases, Pinback toured as a full five piece band, hitting points
across North America and Europe. Additionally, Pinback offered up many tour-only eps,
consisting of various combinations of live tracks, alternate takes, and unreleased songs.
In 2003, absolutely kosher released the lengthy 5-song ep, Offcell.
The next chapter in their story will begin on October 12, 2004, when Pinback's debut
record for Touch and Go is released. Summer in Abaddon was recorded by the duo in
Zach's home studio over the course of 2003, and truly captures Pinback's essence.
Although it may seem like gentle pop music at first encounter, its brilliance is slowly
revealed upon repeated listens. Songs are buoyant and lively at times, melancholy and
dark at others, and always resonate with an underlying intensity. Between two musicians,
Pinback lays out beautiful melodies that are deceptively complex, layering sounds and
instruments upon one another and trading contrasting vocal parts with ease.
Pinback's latest, "Autumn of the Seraphs," pushes forward and upward. Its melodies are more dynamic and aggressive, while still gently pulling you back in again and again. While entirely recorded in the band's home studios once again, this record is tighter, the drumming more immediate and crisp. Those duties were shared by Mario Rubalcaba (Rocket from the Crypt) and Chris Prescott (No Knife), and... it's a marked difference from Pinback's previous releases. "Good to Sea" is the jam of Indian summer. "Walters" saunters its way to a buzzy guitar breakdown while "Subbing for Eden" works steadily toward each climactic chorus. "Autumn of the Seraphs" is for both rabbits and people, for good days and for ones where you should have stayed in bed. It's Pinback's best yet, and it's going to take you over.
