“Muerde” is one of two songs on the album sung in Spanish. Kevin Bilapka-Arbelaez handles lead vocals on this one, which tackles the death of the “American Dream.” One key lyric, “Una araña en la sombra me araña el hombro mientras duermo, y me envenena el sueño,” translates to “A spider in the darkness bites me as I sleep and poisons my dream.” The musical backdrop is as tumultuous and ever-shifting as the cultural environment he’s bemoaning.” More HERE

“The track begins in Spanish with anguished vocals that beg you to listen. It then shifts, as a deep bass booms against ticking percussion; the band seemingly challenging the idea of indifference : “all I ever wanna hear is what you never wanna say.” The line seems almost a dare, a shot at listeners or whoever is listening to care, to take a stand.” Listen HERElike memory foam - out November 23rd on Damnably.

Ghost Forests is as textured as a California sunset, as guitars, synth, harp and vocals bleed into the canvas with equal parts darkness and wonder. Five of the six tracks feature Baird’s glowing voice and songs built from studio improvisations, but the opening track is entirely instrumental. Baird tells NPR Music that the spectral and slow-building “Between Two Worlds” came out of the duo’s first experiments.” Listen HERE

Ghost Forests (released by Three Lobed, natch) is a perfect blend of Baird and Lattimore’s distinctive styles, with the former’s haunting voice and Britfolk-inflected guitar complemented at every turn by the latter’s elegant harp and subtly adventurous electronics.” More HERE!

“There’s a strange healing that comes from a long ride by yourself. Something about the sensation of continual forward movement, the openness of the road contributing to the openness of your head. Even when it gets lonely — and it does get lonely, it has to — there’s a magic to it. Wherever you are, you’re going there. That’s what David Bazan is singing about in “Yellow Bike,” the first single released from Pedro the Lion’s forthcoming Phoenix. Out January 18 via Polyvinyl, it’s the first Pedro the Lion record since 2004’s short-stories-as-songs collection Achilles Heel.” Listen HERE

“Today, the band premieres new single “Haunting,” exclusively on NYLON, and announces its forthcoming EP, Octubre. But don’t let the name fool you. You’ll still be spinning these tunes long after you’ve gotten over the candy-induced coma.” Listen HERE
