Convincing you to see Overseas tonight should be as simple as naming the individual members of the band: David Bazan (Pedro the Lion), Will Johnson (Centro-matic, South San Gabriel), and Matt and Bubba Kadane (Bedhead, the New Year). On the self-titled Overseas album that came out earlier this year, Bazan and Johnson's uniquely contradictory natures serve as excellent foils for each another—Bazan's fire-and-brimstone preacher remains tempered by regret and disillusionment, while Johnson's world-weary, whiskey-licked whisper can't quite conceal his inherent optimism and hope. Whether the bleak but solid Overseas will stand up to recent masterpieces like Bazan's Curse Your Branches or Centro-matic's Candidate Waltz remains to be seen, but I wouldn't count it out.
