Having spent half of the last decade on tour away from home, Pedro The Lion frontman David Bazan's new album reflects the wandering life of a traveling troubadour. And while there is joy in that life, "Blanco" is born of its challenges. It's what, and whom, he leaves at home that you hear on "Blanco." Made up of tracks that were previously available in a very limited edition 7" vinyl series called "Bazan Monthly, Volume 1 And Volume 2," Bazan turned to northwest indie-rock veteran Yuuki Matthews, who both co-produced "Strange Negotiations" and co-founded celebrated indie band Crystal Skulls, to help craft the endeavor. LP includes single-use code to download high quality MP3 files.
