MP3 At 3PM: The Autumn Defense

You might know John Stirratt and Patrick Sansone via their day jobs: rocking out in Wilco. But by night, the dynamic duo kicks back to write and record songs as the Autumn Defense. On November 2, the band will release fourth album Once Around (Yep Roc), the follow-up to its 2007 self-titled effort. The duo recently returned from a European Wilco tour and is gearing up for a North American jaunt that kicks off November 6 in Three Oaks, Mich.
