Interview with David Bazan and Brandon Vedder
3 days ago
Perennial indie powerhouse David Bazan is back with his second record in as many years and still wrestling with himself and the world around him in a way that only he can. It's easy to love David in the same way we love certain Wes Anderson characters: he's unabashedly himself and thoroughly honest with a deep empathy for everyone he comes into contact with. He's wise beyond his years and that comes not from a pursuit of being wise but from a pursuit of being true to himself, his family, and his craft. He's given his life to music and with a film now in the works about parts of that life and Brandon Vedder has spent the last 2 years making a film about that very pursuit. I talk with Dave and Brandon about the film, Dave's childhood and upbringing, his music career, and much much more so you don't want to miss out. We've also teamed up with the film to help it reach its fundraising goal on Kickstarter. Care is now available in the VMP online store and all proceeds from the sale of this record will be donated to the film's Kickstarter. This is a heavy and necessary record from one of the finest American songwriters alive.
