We had Crooked Fingers trapped on the outside deck at Tribune Tower, so it would've been a waste to just stop at one song. Mainman Eric Bachmann jokingly asked why we didn't just have the duo play its own "Sleep All Summer" as a summer song. (Answer: It's not a cover if you wrote it...) Anyway, here's that. We recorded another pair of songs up there as well, which we're going to hang on to and play for you a little closer to the release of Crooked Fingers' new album, Breaks In The Armor, which comes out in October.
