Pinback's new release, a catchy indie rock affair entitled Summer in Abaddon, could be its best work yet. Intricate vocal harmonies provide an essential component to its sound, which took three years of fine-tuning. "Zach and I are different people," says multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Rob Crow of his coconspirator, Armistead Burwell "Zach" Smith IV. "We have different ideas about things, so it takes us a long time to hammer stuff out so that we both like it." Accompanied by three additional musicians, including a pianist, the band's meticulous craftsmanship should make for an enthralling live experience.
