Who: David Bazan from Seattle.
What: I’m in the perfect mood for the thumping, organ-heavy sound of former Pedro The Lion David Bazan with ‘Bless This Mess‘,’an ode to stuggle, and the often-dashed desire to better oneself’. No matter what incarnation David is singing as, I’m always going to give it good ears. Something about his voice and the way the songs come across, has me agreeing with Paste Magazine in calling him on of the 100 best living songwriters. Look for the album (Curse Your Branches) out on September 1st via Barsuk. Tons of dates through October and November. Think I’ll catch the Toronto show. Didn’t someone propose to someone else at a Bazan (Pedro) show years back?
Song: Bless This Mess.
