[INDIE POP] Pinback may never change. For over a decade, the San Diego duo of Rob Crow and Zach Smith has been making polite, nuanced pop music that’s often more than meets the ear. By flipping the register of melodies and plucking out arpeggios on bass rather than guitar, Pinback achieves a dense field of melody that seems like multi-tracked studio trickery at first. Paired with crisp electronic beats, it works incredibly well live and is often several BPMs faster than the recorded output—not just background music for buying jeans or ordering a latte. Although it’s great for that, too.
