PEDRO THE LION’S Achilles Heel (JT1095) is now available for preorder (Released May 25th, 2004) – both gorgeously austere and deceptively sweet, this adroit follow-up to 2002′s politically enraged Control was recorded in Washington State at the band’s home studio where longtime David Bazan collaborator TW Walsh was joined by multi-instrumentalist James McAlister (Ester Drang) as the group spent a solid month working on the album’s tracks. The end result is as musically mature as it is emotionally complex, a stunning culmination of the band’s graceful song-craft and Bazan’s well-honed laconic narrative. Achilles Heel is thoroughly imbued with the hopeful sadness that only PEDRO THE LION can, and do deliver.
