Over the recent month’s we’ve kept you up to date with the return of Rob Crow; his single streams and various downloads regarding his forthcoming album release.
Today via one of our favourites found in Temporary Residence we stream you another new track.
Rob Crow is the frontman for the relatively well-known group Pinback. When he’s not touring with, or making albums for one of his many collaborations – including the Pinback, The Ladies, Goblin Cock, Optiganally Yours, Other Men, Alpha Males, etc. – he makes solo records. Since the release of 2007’s Living Well, the Pinback co-founder has worked diligently on the long-awaited follow-up to Autumn of the Seraphs , welcomed two more children to his ever-expanding family, and incredibly found the time to write and record He Thinks He’s People, out October 18 on Temporary Residence Ltd. The label has “Pat’s Crabs” from He Thinks He’s People streaming below-
Rob Crow’s solo work has been described by Under The Radar as “Perfect melodic indie rock,” while Giant Robot said, “Recalls not only the versatility of Prince, but the lush, dreamy vision of a group like XTC.” He Thinks He’s People continues Crow’s penchant for drawing inspiration from a variety of genres with an uncanny ability to create a subtle, relaxing mood throughout. This is likely attributed to his remarkable voice, a trademark that has helped make Pinback an institution for the past decade. The ease and sincerity with which he delivers lines as wrought as “Sometimes, just hope is the trap” – or playfully revels in the morbid demise of people who talk on their cell phones during movies – is what make Crow truly one-of-a-kind, and a shining light who continues to thrive on the outer edges of pop music.
