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.
