Pedro the Lion - It's Hard to Find a Friend (1998)

I'm exhausted from this heat so I'm in a pretty mellow mood. When i get home from working outside i just want to crash and listen to something that isn't abrasive or intense...or so I used to think. This stuff is actually quite a bit of both those things, just not through the instruments. The way the guy sings is very reflective and almost shy and its just great to listen to. It's 2 guys who play all the instruments so it shows through their somewhat minimalist structure and acoustic nature. Great night-time summer music.

  1. "Of Up and Coming Monarchs" – 3:00
  2. "The Longer I Lay Here" – 3:04
  3. "Big Trucks" – 2:32
  4. "Suspect Fled the Scene" – 3:56
  5. "Bad Diary Days" – 4:01
  6. "The Longest Winter" – 4:12
  7. "When They Really Get to Know You They Will Run" – 2:34
  8. "Of Minor Prophets and Their Prostitute Wives" – 2:48
  9. "The Bells" – 4:09
  10. "Secret of the Easy Yoke" – 6:41
  11. "The Well" – 3:31
  12. "Promise" – 2:19
