“His Phase”

Pinback: “His Phase”

Rob Crow is one of those prolific (albeit underrated) songwriters who can dabble in any genre at any given time. Keeping busy with his many projects (including his solo singer/songwriter material as well as his heavy-metal outfit Goblin Cock), Crow is perhaps best known for his work with indie outfit Pinback.

Now he and Zach Smith (Three Mile Pilot) have released their latest Pinback effort, and once again, the San Diego-based duo has created another mix of crisp, clean-cut guitars, noodling bass lines, tight and terse drumming, and tinkerings of piano and strings, all fronted by Crow’s distinct tenor. With standout tracks like “Proceed to Memory” and “Glide” in tow, it’s a shame Crow doesn’t visit Pinback more often than he already does.
