I am a lover of the Pinback. I was excited enough just to hear they had a new album coming out, then I heard the first single and got even more excited, now a limited to 500 colored vinyl that’s dark blue w/ black haze. Yeah this is awesome.
Only the first 500 orders get one, so get on it or be sad later.
Price – $14
From the Label
On one hand, their fifth album,¬†Information Retrieved, is the logical and accessible realization of a sound Pinback have been developing and refining for over a decade. However, that consistency that we’ve taken for granted is what makes¬†Information Retrieved¬†such a euphoric surprise; their finest and most fully realized album, a dozen years deep into a career that includes bonafide modern classics like “Good To Sea” andSummer In Abaddon. Simply put, this is better than we ever could have expected. They could have coasted on automatic pilot to another lauded album that likely would have made it onto plenty of year-end lists, but instead they shot the moon, and the result is a major triumph. The touchstones are still there: Zach Smith’s stunningly unique bass guitar acrobatics driving both rhythm and melody in lock-step unison; the incredible immediacy of Rob Crow’s voice that could make a phone book sound compelling; and the musical and lyrical interplay between the two of them that made Pinback so special in the first place. The difference now is their exquisite control over dynamics and a greater emotional resonance throughout. It’s the most complete and soulful Pinback album by a fair distance, the finest moment in the career of a band whose unfettered brilliance we’ve come to count on, but will never again take for granted.
