The Headphones

Pedro the Lion has gone minimal on this first outing from the Seattle-based side-project of Pedro’s David Bazan and Tim Walsh. Headphones’ self-titled debut holds with a staunch anti-guitar policy: There is only synthesizer and drums on Headphones. This gives the album a spare, almost hollow sound, and when coupled with heartrending lyrics it achieves simple yet haunting effects.
