    Control (Pre-Order)

    Remastered


    Control (2002) is the third full-length album by Pedro the Lion and in his AV Club review, Josh Modell states, "musically, Control stands as David Bazan's strongest work yet. By necessity, the music can't obscure or obstruct the vocals, and Bazan does a fine job of balancing his resigned voice with alternately bleak and crashing, Bedhead- style rock. He matches Control's dispirited tone with music that sounds alternately resigned and angry, hopeless and charging. In a world of bands parlaying false angst into hit records, it's refreshing to hear one that's unafraid of real, adult emotions: Control may be dark and sometimes brutal, but it's ultimately life-affirming and difficult to forget. That's a worthwhile tradeoff."


    After a shifting lineup, Pedro the Lion eventually became a one-man outfit. That man is David Bazan. A Seattle native, Bazan cut his teeth playing in hardcore bands before forming Pedro in 1995.


    Under the moniker of Pedro the Lion, Bazan creates melodic pop in the vein of Bedhead, Hayden, and Sebadoh, with a lyrical focus on relationships. In early 2006, Bazan retired the Pedro moniker to continue on with solo work under his own name. In December of 2017, Bazan announced that Pedro The Lion would reunite to make a new album and tour the world in 2018.

    Winners Never Quit (Pre-Order)

    Remastered


    "Winners Never Quit (2000) is an odd fable of a corrupt, self-righteous politician and his sweeter but equally wayward brother. The opening song, Slow and Steady Wins the Race, lends this whole affair more weight than it really deserves, and it is easily the best song on the album. Bazan works up a primitive blast of rock & roll on a couple of the songs, which gives Pedro more musical variety; otherwise, Bazan keeps it to the spare amateur vision he employed so well on It's Hard to Find a Friend; not always for the best. An interesting album, spooky in spots, but other than the terrific Slow and Steady, this one's a curiosity.

    It's Hard To Find A Friend

    Remastered


    It's Hard to Find a Friend is the debut full-length album by Pedro the
    Lion; a solid indie rock album with plenty of lyrical talent to spare.
    After a shifting lineup, Pedro the Lion eventually became a one-man
    outfit. That man is David Bazan. A Seattle native, Bazan cut his teeth
    playing in hardcore bands before forming Pedro in 1995, taking the
    band's name from a character he made up for a possible children's
    book. It's Hard to Find a Friend was originally released in 1998.

    Suicide Squeeze Records Presents:Forever Singles (Awaiting Repress)


    Limited Edition Of 1,000 Copies


    Pressed On Custom Light Green Vinyl


    Hand-numbered


    Like many of the great independent record labels of the '90s, Suicide Squeeze started
    off as a hobby. And like so many other hobby labels, Suicide Squeeze's rst ventures
    were 7 singles. But whereas many upstarts plodded through a series of crudely
    assembled debut records by short-lived and long-forgotten friends' bands, the Seattle
    label hit the ground running with a stream of well-packaged singles by beloved
    Northwest artists - 764-Hero, Pedro The Lion, Elliott Smith, and Modest Mouse, to
    name a few. Not surprisingly, the quality of these early releases helped catapult the
    label into a full-time operation.


    Whether a testament to the enduring allure of vinyl or the quality of the artists on the
    roster, Suicide Squeeze continues to make 7s. And in this era of renewed interest in
    vinyl, the label's limited-run releases sell out quickly. Lucky collectors continue to enjoy
    the vinyl, and the dedicated fans always have the option to download the mp3s. But
    what's the better plan for making these recordings endure for posterity? To add mp3s
    to the ever-expanding annals of the internet, or to create a new slab of wax capturing
    the best singles Suicide Squeeze has had to offer in recent years? Not content with
    limiting the songs to the former, the Seattle indie label is going for the latter, culling
    some of their nest tracks for the compilation album Suicide Squeeze Presents:
    Forever Singles.


    The LP captures the rowdy garage rock of The Coathangers and Davilla 666, the
    scraggly dirt-ridden guitars of JEFF the Brotherhood and Heavy Cream, the nostalgic
    '60s girl-group melodies of Bleached and La Luz, the exuberant power pop of
    Audacity, King Tuff, Nobunny, and Meat Market, the hazy noir soundtrack of Dirty
    Beaches, the vitriolic basement-show noise-punk of Nu Sensae, the sinister post-punk
    of Wax Idols, and the West Texas-bred Twin Reverb rock of The Numerators. Bundled
    together onto one record, the collection perfectly captures the spirit of Suicide
    Squeeze in the current decade: rambunctious youthful urgency tempered with a hat
    tip to rock n' roll's gritty unsung heroes of the past.


    In keeping with the limited-edition nature of the 7s, Forever Singles will be released
    on 1000 hand-numbered colored vinyl. And while the compilation is a vital
    documentation of the Northwest label's continuing commitment to bold and brash new
    artists, it's also a solid reminder of rock music's humble beginning on dusty old '45s.

    I Do Perceive

    Mike Kinsella continues as Owen on his third full-length, I Do Perceive, out on Polyvinyl. Kinsella constructs sensitive, emotional music, showcasing nice hooks and skillful guitar picking against electronic and acoustic drumbeats. Whispery vocals crack from exhaustion throughout I Do Perceive -- dramatic words weigh physically on Owen to the point where Kinsella can barely get anything out. The music is in the emo-indie rock camp with the likes of Pedro the Lion and Dashboard Confessional, songs of relationships and longing with melodramatics included. Kinsella is most successful when he changes up the structure and instrumentation within a song. "That Tattoo Isn't Funny Anymore" and "Bed Abuse" are standout tracks with interesting time changes and lush switches from solo acoustic guitar to full band atmospherics. I Do Perceive is more of the same from Owen -- a decent, melancholy release that stands up with others from his discography.

    Fortitude

    Denver's Ian Cooke released his second album, Fortitude, in January of 2012, with the help of The Greater Than Collective.



    Produced by Ian O'Dougherty and mixed by Bob Ferbache, (Slim Cessna's Auto Club, Wovenhand), Fortitude showcases the wide array of musical proficiency that Cooke possesses as he switches from playful to dark and sincere at the flick of a cello bow. Splicing in elements of indie, classical, progressive rock, and more, the album builds on the foundation laid down by his previous album, The Fall I Fell, and expands it with stronger writing and loftier concepts.



    Cooke's talent coupled with his diligent work ethic has earned him several accolades, including features in SPIN, a Daytrotter session, a #1 ranking in the 2009 Denver Post Music Poll and "Best Singer Songwriter," "Best album," and "Best Avant-Garde" nods by Westword. Cooke was also featured alongside Billy Bragg, M. Ward, Owen Pallet, and more on a Joanna Newsom tribute.



    He has toured in the US and Australia playing with The Dresden Dolls, Crooked Fingers, Built to Spill, The Decemberists, The Flaming Lips, Blonde Redhead, Devotchka, Rasputina, Wovenhand, Pedro the Lion and many more. With packaging as engaging as the music it contains, Fortitude is a direct copy of nothing, a truly original and unique endeavor.
