Pitchfork Premieres Rob Crow's "Sophistructure" Video
New Record He Thinks He's People Out Now On Temporary Residence Ltd
Rob Crow’s new solo album, He Thinks He’s People, is out now on Temporary Residence Ltd. Head over to Pitchfork to check out an exclusive premiere of the new self-directed video for the album’s lead track, “Sophistructure.”
Since the release of 2007’s Living Well, Rob Crow's breakthrough sophomore solo album, the Pinback co-founder has worked diligently on the long-awaited follow-up to Autumn of the Seraphs, welcomed two more children to his ever-expanding family, and incredibly found the time to write and record He Thinks He's People.
More dynamic and eclectic than its predecessor, He Thinks He's People, out now on Temporary Residence Ltd, marries Crow 's penchant for drawing inspiration from a variety of genres with an uncanny ability to create a subtle, relaxing mood throughout. This is likely attributed to his remarkable voice, a trademark that has helped make Pinback an institution for the past decade. The ease and sincerity with which he delivers lines as wrought as "Sometimes, just hope is the trap" – or playfully revels in the morbid demise of people who talk on their cell phones during movies – is what make Crow truly one-of-a-kind, and a shining light who continues to thrive on the outer edges of pop music.
