Rob Crow: He Thinks He's People
More dynamic and eclectic than its predecessor, He Thinks He's People marries Pinback frontman Rob 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.
Rob Crow: Up
Still living well, Rob Crow returns with the second single from his breakthrough album, Living Well. Primarily known as the frontman for indie pop darlings Pinback, Crow has established himself as a brilliant solo artist with tracks like "I Hate You, Rob Crow," and this new single, "Up." Also featured here are three (count 'em) previously unreleased tracks, including the obscenely catchy "Forced Letter."
Rob Crow: Living Well
NOW AVAILABLE IN LIMITED EDITION VINYL FORMAT WITH FIVE NON-ALBUM BONUS TRACKS!!!Somewhere between the breakneck touring to support Pinback's breakthrough Touch and Go debut, Summer in Abaddon, and the release of The Ladies' debut album (his collaboration with Zach Hill of Hella/Team Sleep), the impossibly prolific Rob Crow had an epiphany: SLOW DOWN.Not coincidentally, this revelation occurred shortly after the birth of his first child (named Robertdale Crow III, of course). Crow's time at home was suddenly more important than ever. His family is all over Living Well, his third solo album: in the album title, the artwork (layered with dozens of family photos), and the intensely personal lyrics which document Crow's courtship with his wife, their marriage, and the subsequent birth of their first child.Not only is Living Well Crow's finest solo album by a country mile, it also transcends many of Pinback's most canonic moments. It has the hooks and heart that he is famous for, with a refined focus not seen in Crow's other projects.
Rob Crow: I Hate You, Rob Crow
Following the success of his recently released solo alum ? and his first-ever US solo tour ? Pinback frontman Rob Crow keeps the ride moving with the first single from Living Well, affectionately titled "I Hate You, Rob Crow." In addition to the album cut, the disc also includes two non-album tracks ? the moody synth-driven instrumental "Sea Sawn," and the Heavy Vegetable-esque "Slick" ? as well as the now-infamous video for "I Hate You, Rob Crow," featuring, among other highlights, Crow singing through a mic attached to a man's intestines.
