I could recomment almost any song Pedro The Lion has recorded, but this recent song embodies most of what PTL stands for: quiet, folky, melancholy lyrics but also angry, hard and bitter. You can download this song from the label website: www.jadetree.com
this song is written as a dialogue between father and son. and no, it's not actually about big trucks (or tonka trucks, which is too bad, because a song about tonka truks would be pretty damn sweet). the words are phenominal. any son of a father will be able to relate to this song. maybe even girls too.
