We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Broken Field Runner’s cover of Pedro the Lion’s song “When They Really Get to Know You They Will Run” (listen below).

For the song, Jetsam-Flotsam plans on sending all digital sales to support The Greater Houston Community Foundation. You can purchase the single via Bandcamp.

Broken Field Runner guitarist/vocalist Tony Bucci commented: “Jo Jo and I are huge fans of Pedro The Lion and David Bazan. There are songs that speak to me more clearly, but this song is one of the first I heard from Bazan and really what drove my love affair/obsession with his discography.”

Concerning the donations, Bucci said: “I made a conscious decision a few years ago to stop engaging people politically. Every day was a different argument and I could feel my baseline raising to accept high anxiety as normal. That said, the current social and political climate makes keeping quiet impossible. I know that, in the words of Craig Finn, ‘every show can’t be a benefit.’ But we felt we needed to do what we can, whatever little that is. And we figured that beginning in Houston, with a local foundation, is the best place to start.”
