David Bazan went with band to Electrcial and dropped a live-in-studio album, Three tracks are hearable here and it's just a whole 'nother beast of a band, turns the songs into new creations--Casey's drumming put them in a new frame, Dave's voice is roughed up and more rock singer. So fucking good. This is the sort of thing I've wished Richard Buckner would do for the last decade, an end of tour straight to tape LP, no overdubs, no improperly jazzed up drumming (sorry McEntire) getting in the way of his squall.
