Before setting off on their tour, The Long Winters treated NY to a secret and FREE show at the intimate Mercury Lounge. This band is so much fun live and their new album is really good. They played only new songs with the exception of 2 including “Cinnamon”. The new songs is an extension of their Ultimatum EP released late last year. John Roderick continues his story telling lyrics over simple and catchy melodies. The crowd was full of fans and happy to hear the new material, including “Pushover” which is a highly addicting song. Go see them live at Bowery at the end o September.
