Rob Crow and Armistead B. Smith IV continue to create complex indie pop with smart, subtle structures on Pinback's Offcell. Vocal tracks harmonize, electronics punctuate, guitars punch clean, key changes shift quickly, and syncopated drums all swirl in the thick instrumentation, giving Offcell many dimensions.
Pinback is an indie rock band from San Diego, California. The band was formed in 1998 by singers, songwriters and ts Armistead Burwell Smith IV and Rob Crow, who have been its two consistent members. They have released five studio albums and several other releases. The band's moniker is a reference to a character in the 1974 film Dark Star (played by Dan O'Bannon, who also co-wrote the film), directed by John Carpenter.
Offcell isn't inherently shocking, since- let's be honest- Pinback only have so many moves, but it's another supremely gorgeous record from a band that exists outside contemporary musical trends, yet makes absolute sense within them. Quite simply, Pinback are an original pop band, and these days, you can almost count their peers on two hands. I saw Rob Crow and Armistead Burwell Smith IV a few months ago, at a bar staffed by muscle-bound, black-clad bouncers and tall, blonde, half-shirted waitresses carrying illuminated trays.

Offcell closes with an 11-minute epic entitled Grey Machine that I’ll admit to skipping on most of my listens to this album. But that skipping is undeserved. The song centers around a straightforward keyboard line that conjures pictures of being peacefully lost in space. Halfway through the tables turn to a sweeter piano melody with vocals above that send us off feeling warm on the inside. All in all, Offcell is a therapeutic listen. It touches all the basic emotions while still being grounded in pleasant (but not cheesy!) melody.
