Pinback

Some Voices EP

Tree

It’s easy to describe Pinback if you know your reference points: Rob Crow (Heavy Vegetable, Thingy, Optiganally Yours, Physics, and more) and Armisted Burwell Smith IV (Three Mile Pilot). Pinback borrows heavily from Crow and Smith’s styles, juxtaposing Crow’s limber and catchy approach with Smith’s haunting and ghostly tendencies. For some reason, Pinback’s music reminds me of a melody I’d hallucinate, rocking in a hammock at sunset on a small boat, on a becalmed sea. It’s simultaneously soothing and spooky.

Lily and Generoso review Hold Me Tight, the sixth feature directed by renowned actor Mathieu Amalric. Centered around a brilliant performance from Vicky Krieps (Phantom Thread, Bergman Island), Hold Me Tight is an unpredictable and remarkable psychological drama.
