    Not sure too many people on here will know this guy

    Pedro The Lion is the name of David Bazan's band (or solo act on quite a few occasions). The guy has had a cult status in US indie for years and he's coming to London next month! and he's doing a European tour. It's hard to describe his music as he's went through different phases. At the moment it's mostly indie rock but he started off doing more folky, melacholic stuff. The lyrics are amazing and his songs are covered with sarcasm.

    If you're interested in discovering an amazing artist try out his website and a website with some samples although it's quite a shame they don't have songs from my favourite albums: It's Hard To Find A Friend and Winners Never Quit.

    Listen to Bands With Managers off Achilles' Heel. According to a few people (in an issue of NME :rolleyes:), that was the best song of 2005. But if you get round to listening his old songs, do! They're amazing: Whole, Lullaby, The Longer I Lay Here, Hymn, Bad Diary Days, Of Minor Prophets And Their Prostitute Wives.

    I wouldn't call his stuff christian rock. It's not really influenced by christian rock. He just talks a bit about his beliefs in his songs.

    With songs like "Of Minor Prophets and Their Prostitute Wives", it's hard to compare him to a Christian rock band. Plus the vast majority of his songs have nothing to do with religion: songs about growing up, about female body hair, about cheating...


    But if some people want to class him as Christian rock, why not...

    No he doesn't do tours organised by the Repressed Homosexual Association of North America.
