Pinback frontman Rob Crow
has recorded with a number of bands with excellent monikers -- like Goblin Cock, Heavy Vegetable, and Thingy. But hes at his best when he goes the solo route, like on the new Living Well. Many of the songs clock in at less than two minutes, and Crow pretty much plays every note. And like most bedroom projects, Living Wells indie-rock doesnt even bother to mask its lo-fi origins. The San Diego-based oddballs third solo album is also his most personal. Many of the songs are about his wife and the birth of their first son -- not that youd know it with titles like Bam Bam and I Hate You, Rob Crow.
