Join Matt Besser, 4 humans –Horatio Sanz, John Gemberling, Michael Delaney, and Brian Huskey– and 1 musician, David Bazan, for this extra special musically inspired episode of improv4humans.
I think Fewer Moving Parts was the one thing I thoroughly enjoyed from start to finish as far as releases go solo wise, which is kind of shame considering how impactful his work in Pedro the Lion has been on my life. His voice is still amazing and has a knack for still writing a great song here and there but overall the records don't have a flow that keeps me as interested as PTL material did. I loved the first half of Curse Your Branches but by the end, it lost it for me. Strange Negotiations at first seemed like a return to form for me in a way, but I haven't listened to it in a long time after I became increasingly bored with it. This Spring 2013 Tour EP is kind of nice though, Bazan always finds a way to do covers incredibly well and make them his own. Either way, Bazan has been so impactful I'll always check out what the man has up his sleeve even if I'm not 100% as I was with older work.
I had tickets to the living room tour for four months in denver. But then missed the day, because i don't know how to read dates apparently. I Went to the house the day after the show, and was all confused. damn it feels bad.
"Strange Negotiations" is on position two in my list with best albums of 2011. Great urban folk rock, indie rock stories, which catch me with clever lyrics and right tone of voice and guitar of David Bazan. Thank you David for this beautiful journey with your urban view of things in our life.
@GregOfTheOcean Looking back, my post has a tone I wasn't trying to imply. I was using "ridiculous" more in a "I've never seen that before" sort of way. You're right, though - it must be the lack of singles.
