Last year Wilco and Built To Spill both covered Pavement in concert. How did you feel about their takes on your songs?
Those are bands and people that I feel copacetic with. I’ve had moments of clarity listening to their songs; they’re special, really musical bands. And they’re growing old gracefully type dudes. And positive. So I like them both, a lot.
This guest mixtape is brought to you by Pat Sansone of The Autumn Defense (and some band called Wilco). Enjoy these 11 tracks just ahead of their back to back record release shows at Schubas. Tickets are available online for both Friday and Saturday’s shows.
