Recorded, mixed, and mastered at Treehouse Records by Barrett Guzaldo straight to analog tape, this single comes ahead of Thompson Springs’ debut full length album, to be released later in 2019.

Take a listen to the new single below, and if you’re heading to SXSW this year, don’t miss Thompson Springs at our ANCHR SXSW Showcase at Shiner’s Saloon on March 14th.

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.
