ROB SEZ: As I write, there's a lovely nip in the air here in our Western N.C. mountains, which reminds me that fall is coming soon. Naturally, this means I thought of a band named Autumn Defense for this week's blog post. Although the band is not new to the blog, Autumn Defense may be unknown to some blog readers. A.D. is a side project of Wilco members Pat Sansone and John Stirratt. Musically & stylistically, their music brings to mind the classier, gentler elements of 1970s-era pop and rock. Sample the sample & see what you think. Massive thanks to J. Noel for recording & sharing the 2019 show, and to B. Murphy, C. Coyle & Owl & Bear for recording, transferring & sharing the 2010 set.
