Three Imaginary Girls

Seattle's Indie-Pop Press – Music Reviews, Film Reviews, and Big Fun

Basically, Pinback is one of those bands that can do no wrong. At least in my musical world, where they live lodged firmly between bearded, haunted, sad-bastard notebook lyrics and dirty, gritty indie rock. Their bass-laden double front-man performances, both in the studio and on the stage, are really a feast for the ears —  Pinback and Autumn of the Seraphs were two of the albums I picked up as “must-haves that I had somehow missed” this past year and both have been in heavy rotation since.

Their current tour is stopping through town tomorrow night at Neumo’s, where you can get a slice of this magic first-hand {$17 adv., $20 dos}. For our PDX friends, it looks like the tour stops in town the following night, with plans for San Francisco, Los Angeles, and San Diego before a cross-country jump to New York on the 22nd.

As the officials put it, they’re “infectious,” “dreamy,” and “not to be missed.” I couldn’t agree more.

Here’s a video for “From Nothing to Nowhere” off of AotS:


And “Fortress” off of Summer in Abbadon (with some really fantastic animation):


Hope to see you at the show!
