#172: Pedro the Lion, “Phoenix”

Pedro The Lion’s first record since David Bazan went solo after 2004’s Achilles Heel is our album of the week. Here’s to hoping an European tour is in the works: it’s been almost six years since we hosted one of the most beautiful concerts we ever promoted. Plus: new tracks by Night Beats, Ryan Bingham, Matthew Logan Vasquez, Blank Range,Strand of Oaks, Ex Hex, Cass McCombs, The Comet is Coming, Lala Lala & Why?, Alice Phoebe Lou, Tiny Ruins, Weyes Blood, Mandolin OrangeH.C. McEntire, Townes Van Zandt, Twain, Bob Sumner Music, Steve Gunn, Bonnie Prince Billy, The Wild Reeds, and Teddy and the Rough Riders.


Buke and Gase’s new record, General Dome, is out next week on Brassland and NPR is streaming it for our delight. I don’t think there’s a best way to spend your last hour at work today than listening to this. And working at the same time, of course. Make sure you respect your boss. Send her/him this link to preview the whole album and she/he’ll love you forever.
