We recorded The Autumn Defense for our most recent NoiseTrade EastSide Manor Sessions and the dapper duo of Pat Sansone and John Stirratt delivered quite the sweet sonic warmth. Along with the exclusive EP download available HERE, be sure to check out the companion videos below to catch a behind-the-scenes look at the performances, hear an interview with John and Pat, and watch a short bonus video of the guys playfully warming up with a snippet of “Your Mother Should Know” by The Beatles.
Blending lush harmonies, mosaic arrangements, and the sonic warmth of sun-soaked 60s rock, The Autumn Defense are both impressively complex and deceptively mellow. As the multi-talented duo of John Stirratt and Pat Sansone stopped in to craft their own NoiseTrade EastSide Manor Session, you'll hear that each song reinforces the fact that this is far more than just an “after work hang” from their day jobs in Wilco. Let the jangle-rock of “Everyday,” the folksy bounce of “This Thing That I’ve Found,” and the piano-bass dance of “Written in the Snow” wash over your winter weather wistfulness and be sure to check out their new album Fifth, out January 28 on Yep Roc Records.
