Pinback

Hailing from San Diego, pinback is a band comprised of two principal players: Armistead Burwell Smith IV (Zach) and Rob Crow. Pinback started as a part-time endeavor back in 1998, When Zach’s band 3 mile pilot went on an extended hiatus and Rob found time away from his other musical interests (mainly thingy and heavy vegetable). After recording their self-titled debut, released by ace fu in 1999, Pinback became a fully realized project.

The next few years saw an increase in Pinback activity. In 2000, Tree Records released the ep Some Voices, and Ace Fu released Pinback’s second full-length, blue screen life, in 2001. Between record releases, Pinback toured as a full five piece band, hitting points across North America and Europe. Additionally, Pinback offered up many tour-only eps, consisting of various combinations of live tracks, alternate takes, and unreleased songs. In 2003, Absolutely Kosher released the lengthy 5-song EP, Offcell.

The next chapter in their story will begin on October 12, 2004, when Pinback’s debut record for Touch and Go is released. Summer in Abaddon was recorded by the duo in Zach’s home studio over the course of 2003, and truly captures Pinback’s essence. Although it may seem like gentle pop music at first encounter, its brilliance is slowly revealed upon repeated listens. Songs are buoyant and lively at times, melancholy and dark at others, and always resonate with an underlying intensity. Between two musicians, Pinback lays out beautiful melodies that are deceptively complex, layering sounds and instruments upon one another and trading contrasting vocal parts with ease.

About Neko Case

Five years have passed since Case’s last solo project, The Worse Things Get, the Harder I Fight, the Harder I Fight, the More I Love You. In the interim, she sang on Whiteout Conditions, the 2017 release from longtime bandmates the New Pornographers. The year before that, she released a vinyl box set of her solo work and joined k.d. Lang and Laura Veirs on the case/lang/veirs project.

Her new record, Hell-On, is out June 1st on Anti- Records. The record was born at the hands of some three dozen performers in all, from k.d. Lang, Laura Veirs, Beth Ditto, and Robert Forster on backing vocals, to Joey Burns of Calexico and Doug Gillard of Guided by Voices on guitars, and Barbara Gruska and Matt Chamberlain on drums. The sidelong perspective is part of the known Neko galaxy, but the production is more expansive and edgier, moving into new universes. These are songs that can swallow you.

A force of nature, an act of a mercurial, forgotten god, Hell-On is a record sealed by fire, filled with love and rage and dangers that might lay waste to everything at any moment. So if you wake up dazed in a smoking landscape, walking through the detritus of your own lost civilization with the smell of ash in your hair, your favorite sweater gone and a new song in your head, don’t say you weren’t warned.

Leftover Salmon

For the past quarter-century, Colorado’s Leftover Salmon has established itself as one of the great purveyors of Americana music, digging deep into the well that supplies its influences; rock ‘n’ roll, folk, bluegrass, Cajun, soul, zydeco, jazz and blues. They are firmly settled in the long lineage of bands that defy simple categorization, instead setting their own musical agenda. They are the direct descendants of bands like Little Feat, New Grass Revival, Grateful Dead and The Band, born of the heart and soul of America itself, playing music that reflects the sounds emanating from the Appalachian hills, the streets of New Orleans, the clubs of Chicago, the plains of Texas, and the mountains of Colorado…
