Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

DAVID BAZAN

Strange Negotiations

2011-05-11

Former Pedro the Lion front man with a slight Christian/spiritual bend, David Bazan relies heavily on melody to move his guitar heavy indie rock. What makes this record especially different is that it is the first Bazan has recorded with a full band.

At times loud and driving and at other times sparse and moving David Bazan has really come into his own as a songwriter focusing on themes of loss, accountability with oneself and learning about and acknowledging your own limitations.
