Pinback is the musical offspring of Rob Crow and Zach Smith. They release an album about every 5 years and each one is better then the last. I get genuinely nervous about each new album and fully expect them to fall down the creative rabbit hole that every other band I like does. Thankfully, they have yet to disappoint me.

Their most recent album, Information Retrieved, easily earned my "Most Asbestos Album" of 2012 award without competition. There was simply not another album that I listened to as much. Grab that one without pause and, if you like it, check out Autumn of the Seraphs (what the above video is from).

Winner of my "Most Asbestos Album" for 2012.
