I was one of many people who had been initially unimpressed by Pedro the Lion and completely missed Headphones, let alone his solo stuff.
But for the past half a year he's been all over my playlists - completely and utterly got into his back catalogue. Some of his lyrics are beyond amazing, and his ability with every single instrument is crazy.
I'm sort of rambling so I thought I would enthusiastically push some big songs on you by Dave himself.
Here we go then:
http://youtu.be/S9lzF2vuec4 <- Magazine, by PTL. Worth it for the drum break into the chorus alone.
http://youtu.be/ZmHIpNEYGjM <- I Never Wanted You. Possibly the best track on the Headphones album. The entire thing is astonishingly depressing, much like 95 per cent of his music.
http://youtu.be/WwyfYlIMJdU <- David Bazan's second solo album iirc. Just an example of his songwriting ability.
Probably no one will reply but give him a shot seriously.
