I’m a sucker for nearly everything San Diego musician Rob Crow has ever recorded—and that means more than just his sort-of established groups, such as jokey metal act Goblin Cock and schizoid experimental-pop project Ladies (with powerhouse drummer Zach Hill). I’m talking about downloading B sides by Optiganally Yours, a duo built around a toy organ called the Optigan; I’m talking about spinning a shoddily recorded live solo cover of the Misfits’ “Astro Zombies” on repeat for weeks; I’m talking about dropping good money on a merely adequate covers EP at a live show because I already owned every other album at the merch booth.

I may have a problem. But Crow’s next release is something you don’t need an unhealthy obsession in order to be interested in hearing: Information Retrieved, a full-length by Pinback. Today’s 12 O’Clock Track is “Proceed to Memory,” the new single from that album.
