Pinback frontman Rob Crow has recorded with a number of bands with excellent monikers -- like Goblin Cock, Heavy Vegetable, and Thingy. But he’s 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 Well’s indie-rock doesn’t even bother to mask its lo-fi origins. The San Diego-based oddball’s 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 you’d know it with titles like “Bam Bam” and “I Hate You, Rob Crow.”
