The Autumn Defense

The Autumn Defense arrived with the 21st century, capturing colors of a bygone era – the result of a collaboration between John Stirratt, longtime member of Wilco and formerly Uncle Tupelo and musical compatriot (Wilco multi-instrumentalist) Pat Sansone. Between noontime highs and slipping sunsets, The Autumn Defense create a sound which both embraces and resists the moods of autumn, and so defines their name. The multi-instrumental duo chase the sun westward to the California coast, gathering inspiration from classic L.A. pop and well-crafted melody basking in the warmth of the 60s and 70s AM Radio tradition.
