Here is a super group of sorts as Lo Tom is made up of David Bazan (Pedro the Lion), Trey Many (Velour 100, Starflyer 59), TW Walsh (Pedro the Lion, The Soft Drugs), and Jason Martin (Starflyer 59). Each musician’s resume is extensive but they have all been friends who started playing music together when they were still pretty much kids.
It is really amazing that this band did not already exist but you would never know from today’s Friday Fire Track, “Covered Wagon,” as you can hear the talent. Lo Tom has a very classic rock vibe that is driven from guitar and Bazan’s smooth vocals. The band will release its self-titled debut LP on July 14 on Barsuk so check out their new track today and of course – Enjoy your Friday!
