-Another week, another two spins going to tracks that feature the vocals of Justin Vernon.

-Merchandise will get you nice and fired up for both the release of A Corpse Wired for Sound later this week, and their upcoming gig at the trusty ol’ Empty Bottle a week from Friday (9/30).

-The Lower Dens track was inspired by a letter that was published in an old copy of Oui magazine. What, too young to remember Oui? Here ya go.

-And don’t forget to check out Car Seat Headrest (@ Thalia Hall) and/or Beach Slang (@ Goose Island’s 312 Urban Block Party) this Friday night (9/23).
