Ross, Dan, and Brian guest DJ’d, talked up their new album out now on Merge records, the upcoming national tour beginning Monday, Big Star and the super-cool Dwight Twilley.Below are the three tunes the guys worked up on their acoustics that can be found on I Can’t Go On I’ll Go On plus a nice cover of Guided By Voices “Game of Pricks.” Look for them the next 8 months in a city near you.
