A mini-store filled with records and goods we didn't release (but love anyway).

Released by: Barsuk

This is my favorite work by David Bazan across all his bands and releases. I love the lyrics and the fact that he recorded all the songs electric and acoustic. Bazan took part in Vol. 2 of our 4-Track Singles Series and he's also managed by our good friend Bob at Undertow, which is based in Champaign, IL, along with PVHQ. - Chris

From the Barsuk Records website:

Known for his work fronting the enigmatic rock band Pedro the Lion, David Bazan's emotionally charged narratives, eye for telling detail, and mournful voice have more in common with J.D. Salinger's "Nine Stories" or Flannery O'Connor's "Wise Blood" than with the usual lyrical slant of popular music.

Bazan is a gifted storyteller, weaving parables of spiritual conflict, suburban ennui, and personal surrender into magnetic, well-crafted songs.

Bazan's solo debut EP Fewer Moving Parts finds the beloved Seattle songwriter roaring back to his creative roots, performing and recording everything himself in his home studio, while still expanding his sonic canvas.

His signature songwriting, voice, and melodies are framed in layered harmonies, multi-tracked guitars, analog keyboards, and intricate production.

The 10-track EP presents five new Bazan songs, each recorded in both stripped-down acoustic and full instrumentation forms.
