Limited edition repress - Translucent Red vinyl, MP3 download coupon, limited to 1,000 copies.
Headphones features David Bazan (Pedro the Lion), Tim Walsh (Pedro the Lion, TW Walsh), and Frank Lenz (Starflyer 59). Headphones was recorded and mixed in the early days of 2005. Built wholly from synthesizers (that's right, no guitars), live drums, and the familiar warmth of Bazan's syrupy vocal delivery. Headphones boasts deft arrangements with timeless melodies and uncanny lyrical depth, finding Bazan, Walsh and Lenz at their best. Clean, open room recording; digital subtleties with analog affectations; seamless integration of electronic and rock elements. Headphones is a striking, sophisticated success.
