PREMIERE: Thompson Springs Veltway Sessions
The Chicago-via-Madison trio Thompson Springs released their new EP Fond Regards on August 10th. Grooving guitar riffs and infectious rock melodies guide the five-track EP, which features Wilco's Pat Sansone and was mixed by Rob Laakso of Kurt Vile and the Violators. The trio, composed of Matt Smith, Andy Goitia, and Jacob Bicknase also recently recorded a live version of one of the tracks, "Overloadin' My Heart," at a Veltway Session. To celebrate their European tour, we're bringing you the exclusive first look at their session here.
