ALBUM STREAM: David Bazan – ‘Control’ Remastered


Ten years ago, Pedro the Lion released their most popular album, Control, to rave reviews. About four years ago, I became obssesed with them and their former front man, David Bazan. This year, Bazan is going on a tenth anniversary tour for Control, and had each album remastered. Now, Jade Tree Records is streaming the remastered version of the album (which is actually perhaps my favorite Pedro the Lion album – if you only stream one song, may I advise you to listen to “Penetration”.)

Hear the full remastered release here and see the tour dates by clicking “Read more.”

Dan Bogosian

I finished school with a music theory degree. Before I finished school, I was a janitor. You really should apologize to all the janitors you've ever had. You hurt them. Seriously. You did.

But, now that we've cleared that up and you called your high school janitor, know that I quit being a janitor to pursue writing about music. So here I am, and here you are, and hey how are you?
You can skip to the end and leave a response. Pinging is currently not allowed.
  • I’m listening to the remastered and then the originals right after it and trying to compare them. I have problems.
