The following tracks are just a few of the best that the Seattle musician has to offer: “Selling Advertising” Fewer Moving Parts David Bazan A smooth rolling pop tune, “Selling Advertising” features some of Bazan’s finest vocal work. “Fewer Broken Pieces” Fewer Moving Parts David Bazan “Fewer Moving Parts” is a stripped down acoustic piece boosted by the EP’s best lyrical content. “Backwoods Nation” Fewer Moving Parts David Bazan “Backwoods Nation” is politically driven, and catchy, too. “When We Fell” Curse Your Branches David Bazan Haunting lyrics with a pop aura, “When We Fell” is on all-around interesting track. “Options” Control Pedro the Lion Slow, haunting and trippy, “Options” sounds like a later Elliott Smith track. “Keep Swinging” Achilles Heel Pedro the Lion Awesome gritty guitar layers perfectly with a well-flowing vocal on “Keep Swinging.” “Big Trucks” It’s Hard To Find A Friend Pedro the Lion “Big Trucks” is The Shins meet The Counting Crows. “When They Really Get To Know You They Will Run” It’s Hard To Find A Friend Pedro the Lion My personal favorite, the track is a melody made to pleasantly stick in the listener’s head. “The Fleecing” Achilles Heel Pedro the Lion “The Fleecing” features beautiful lyrics with a hint of Crosby, Stills, Nash and Young.
