RIYL: David Bazan

Label: Polyvinyl Records

Count ’em.  15 years, ladies and gentlemen.  Pedro the Lion’s last album was 2004’s Achilles Heel.  The Chappelle Show was still on the air.  Myspace was taking over the internet.  ‘Tweeting’ still meant ‘stabbing a hooker’.  Needless to say, a new album from Bazan and the boys is huge news for all of the folks (like me) that grew up on albums like Winners Never Quit and Control.  I’ve never considered myself a lyrics person, but Pedro the Lion challenged that viewpoint with their humble, introspective outlook.  To call this an ‘instabuy’ would be a monumental understatement.

Polyvinyl Records has an Earlybird colorway limited to 1500 copies on seafoam and maroon splatter.  Mmmm that sounds…comforting.  Check out newest single Yellow Bike below and grab some wax after the ‘buy’ link.
