Pinback – Summer In Abaddon

Summer In Abaddon

I downloaded a few Pinback records a couple of weeks ago pretty much on a whim, and i’m so glad I did. First things first, i’m perplexed about how these guys have never gained any kind of widespread success. Pinback play a pretty classic take on indie rock, pretty similar to bands like Death Cab and Modest Mouse but have honed their art to perfection, resulting in songs that are both emotional and joyous as well as reflective and sometimes quite passive and most obviously displayed on this record, which in my opinion is far and away their best. Seriously, if you have any kind of passing interest in “indie rock”, which let’s face it you probably do if you’re reading this blog, then you should download this right away.

    There is an eerie coincidence here, as I just pulled this album out this morning, using it’s heavy drumming to get me up and moving. This is definitely a great album, and what I suspect would be their best.

    Speaking of great albums, one other reason I pulled it out is beacuse some friends of mine and I are working to compile our top 21 favorite albums of the first decade of the 21st century (2000-2009). I am pretty sure this one will make my list. If you’re interested, I challenge you to do the same. Our official unveiling to one another will be Jan 1st., 2010. I also plan on making a mix disc, probably a 2-disc set.

    Head over to my blog if you are interested.

    Oh yeah, I have also been really enjoying a new(ish) band, Young Coyotes. They kind of remind me of Pinback mashed up with Band of Horses, would love to hear your take on that too.

Thanks for checking out Acid Math!

This blog will hopefully act as a conduit for me to pass on stuff I think is awesome, to you, the music appreciator. There will be new stuff, old stuff, well known stuff and unknown stuff, everything will be good though, you can be sure of that.

Clicking on a picture will take you to a link where you can download said album for sampling purposes

Don't be selfish, consider all these links as means of sampling the artist only. If you like something then go and buy it. Equally as important, support your local music scene, no matter how small. Go and see shows.

I'm always up for linking with other blogs, so get in touch if you want to as well. Any queries? Leave a comment somewhere and i'll get back to you. Enjoy!
