[POP LITE] There has perhaps never been a term more used and abused than “pop.” In the 21st century, pop is a catchall term for major label tracks that are not “rock,” catchy tunes of any genre and an awful lot of awful music. To this reviewer, true pop should have an airiness and a sweetness, and Pinback delivers that sound. That’s not to say the band is maudlin, but it’s not earthshattering, either. It can be heard on various soundtracks (The O.C., for one), and that suits the group’s unobtrusive sound well. Light, rolling music for driving, dancing or as a toned-down soundtrack of your life: This is Pinback’s niche, and it’s filling it.
