The Pinc Lincolns is the moniker of Canadian musician Daniel Colussi, and it's the vehicle through which he's released 3 albums of emotionally resonant indie rock. On Oct. 10, he'll share his fourth record (or cassette, if you're into that sort of thing), "On the Plain," via Musty Dusty -- a collection of songs which features contributions from Jay Arner and Nic Bragg of Destroyer. Colussi aims for a mix of alt-rock theatricality and intimate pop reflection, a balance that he's been able to perfect on previous releases.
On his latest single, "Not Half/No End," he blends a rush of guitar distortion with martial percussion and some repeating piano rhythms. The resulting roar is equal parts pure pop euphoria and indie rock angularity. The track's darkened lyrical content is partially upended by it's instantly memorable melody, but there's more simmering beneath its surface than you realize on first listen. This is a song that reveals itself slowly, giving only brief glimpses into its inner workings after many explorations of its depths. Colussi knows how to effortlessly draw you in and keep you engaged while building a complex and bewildering atmosphere that'll leave you breathless and ansxious for more.
