Download Pagoda's First-Ever Single!

WRITTEN BY
SPIN Staff

Michael Pitt has been a rock star on the silver screen -- he played a Kurt Cobain-like character in Last Days and a song-stealer in Hedwig and the Angry Inch -- but now he's finally showcasing his musical chops for real: His band, Pagoda, will drop its eponymous debut Feb. 27. The full-length, which will come via Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace label, is led by the single "Lessons Learned," a grungy-around-the-edges rumbler on which Pitt growls momentarily about self-medicating with aneurysm-inducing aplomb.
