The Long Winters Tonight @ The Independent

We admit we hadn't really given The Long Winters a listen until today, but we like what we're hearing. A friend pointed us towards tonight's show at The Independent, so we figured we'd give it a try. The band has a certain vocal intimacy that reminds us a bit of Okkervil River, but the instrumentation has less of a folk vibe, and singer John Roderick's voice has a touch more sandpaper grit. It enticed us enough to check out tonight's show, so...see you there!
