Pinback's new release, a catchy multimelodic, indie-rock affair titled Summer in Abaddon, could be its best work yet. And it should be: The duo spent three years fine-tuning the CD with painstaking detail. "Zach and I are different people," says multi-instrumentalist/vocalist Rob Crow of his co-conspirator, Armistead Burwell Smith IV, a.k.a. Zach. "We have different ideas about things, so it takes us a long time to hammer stuff out so that we both like it." Accompanied by three additional musicians, including a pianist, the meticulous craftsmanship put into their songs should translate into an enthralling live experience. -- Hans Morgenstern
