For the first time ever on vinyl, The Autumn Defense's stellar debut finally arrives on the format it always deserved to be on. Wilco bassist John Stirratt and multi-instrumentalist Pat Sansone create timeless orchestral pop. Inspired by The Beach Boys and Love, their lush debut album glows with fertile songs about long forgotten loves, endless summers and electric moons. The LP gently swings from Gene Clark country to Big Star pop via XTC psych, and even includes a masterful Mermaid Avenue-esque collaboration with the ghost of Woody Guthrie. For RSD 16, Be With Records presents the limited first vinyl edition, lovingly remastered with upgraded artwork throughout. Preferred Summerteeth to Yankee Hotel Foxtrot? Here's your follow-up.
