David Bazan is back, he never really disappeared but the man has such a finely tuned pop culture calendar, that just when you start wondering if he’s going to come out with a proper LP, the announcement drops.
Since 2011’s excellent Strange Negotiations Bazan has been releasing music directly to fans through limited edition releases, now he’s compiling ten of his best compositions for the label-issued Blanco.
“Trouble With Boys” is the first single from the forthcoming Blanco, and it’s vintage Bazan. Observational, heartfelt and almost cute …. if it wasn’t so heartbreakingly damn sad.
More on the new record from the official website:
“Blanco” will be released world-wide on May 13, 2016 by the fine folks at Barsuk Records! Blanco is made up of songs that were previously available in a very limited edition 7” vinyl series called Bazan Monthly, Volume 1 and Volume 2. David picked ten of those songs to update, remix and flesh out into a cohesive album format that’s easier for fans to collect and bring home.
