Suicide Squeeze will release a limited 10th Anniversary Reissue of Headphones’ self-titled album on May 22nd.
Headphones’ self-titled album is getting a 10th Anniversary reissue courtesy of Suicide Squeeze Records.
Headphones is David Bazan’s (Pedro the Lion) and Tim Walsh’s (Pedro the Lion, TW Walsh) electronic side-project. The album is built entirely from synthesizers (no guitars!) and was originally released in 2005.
Headphones kindly tips their hat to modern stalwarts like Depeche Mode, The Flaming Lips, Kraftwerk, and Radiohead who seamlessly integrated electronics into the fabric of rock and pop music. But here, Bazan and company defy easy assumptions about music made electronically avoiding kitsch and cutesiness, delivering deft arrangements with timeless melodies and uncanny lyrical depth. -Suicide Squeeze
