Side project of Zach Smith (amazing bassist of Pinback), Systems Officer was never meant to go anywhere. With some time after the 2007 Pinback Autumn of the Seraphs, Smith was able to record Systems Officer’s only album, the aptly-titled Underslept. His signature Pinback sound shines through the entire album, but the music as a whole is much more down-tempo and moody. Original piano lines and creative drum fills give the album a very full sound while still maintaining a very minimalist, separated feeling. Check out their song “In This World” off the album Underslept below.
