Blue Screen Life (Ace Fu)

By: Alex Steininger

Pinback perfects the essence of laid back home recording on Blue Screen Life, an album that sounds like a band set up in your living room, had some fun, and recorded a lo-fi indie-pop record for you. Now, that may sound like a diss, but it is not. This is a solid record. Faint and timid at times, picking up the pace during other times, Pinback, even when they really go at the rock, still retain the beauty of their lo-fi, home recorded style by playing slow, airy melodies with dreamy, sleepy rhythms laid over easy natured guitars. This is an honest, real record, floating with a slight pop touch, and as cozy as your warm bed. I'll give it a B+.
