As part of Polyvinyl’s 4-track Singles Series, every month during the year, a different artist will record a new song via a Tascam four-track recorder, and subscribers get it on 7″ vinyl. The latest participant is the former Pedro The Lion frontman David Bazan, who did something unexpected. He recorded a grizzled, lo-fi synthpop take on the Killers’ “Read My Mind.” It sounds something like what might’ve happened if East River Pipe had written that song before the Killers did. Check it out below.
