Pinback, Solos | Motorco Music Hall | Clubs & Concerts | Indy Week
This is a past event.
When: Wed., Nov. 14, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $15-17

Since forming as a bedroom-based side project, Pinback—Rob Crow, Armistead Burwell Smith IV and a rotating touring unit—has done little to alter its almost hypnotic sound. Defined by hushed vocals, melancholic melodies, mellow atmospherics, elastic grooves and airtight beats, Pinback sounds much like Pinback on last month's Information Retrieved, hardly distinguishable from the band's self-titled 1999 debut. That's either good or bad, depending on your existing opinion of Pinback; at any rate, they find a rare balance between being ruminative and danceable. Solos—featuring members of Hella—offers outlandish and proggy pop in the opening spot. —Spencer Griffith
