Pinback – “True North”

Record Store Day’s very special holiday schedule isn’t the only way Black Friday got spiced up this year. (Pardon the horrid joke construct, internalize the fact that we live in an insane country that’s spiraled into a hopeless consumerist hellhole in which spurting pepper spray is the de facto means of communicating with large groups of people. We major!) Nay, for the second straight year, RSD got in on the action with a slate of exclusive rarities, including a 1700 copy limited run of Pinback’s second installment in the Information Retrieved 7″ trilogy, out via Temporary Residence Ltd., functioning as a stop gap until next year’s promised Pinback full-length. (In the time since Pinback’s last LP Rob Crow’s released 37 LPs.) Side A is called “True North,” and we’ve got it for you:

“True North” b/w “CLOAD Q” is out via Temporary Residence. New Pinback LP slated for 2012, to be preceded by the final slot in the “Information Retrieved” trilogy. While you’re here, check out Rob Crow’s video for “Sophistructure” from his 2011 release He Thinks He’s People:
