Pedro the Lion's David Bazan makes Christian indie rock that's not at all evangelical. It's not even particularly full of godly references. Bazan's songs reflect his struggle with his faith -- like Rapture, the second track on Control, in which Bazan describes screwing a woman who's not his wife, and liking it more because of the sinful nature. With super-typical indie rock crunchy guitars, steady (read: dull) drumbeats and slightly distorted vocals, he ain't doing anything new. He adheres to the soft-loud emo dynamics and driving guitar prototype laid out by so many morose boys before him (paging Sebadoh and Galaxie 500 -- see what you've left behind?). Still, the songs boast strong lyricals, visceral emotion, and Bazan's mellifluous Morrissey-esque voice, which makes Control a compelling listen.
