Inside The Rockers Studio: Siren Edition

This Saturday is Village Voice’s annual Siren Festival, where thousands of hipsters descend upon Coney Island for indie rock and Nathan’s. We’re getting psyched, so we’ve asked three Stereogum-approved bands to participate in our stupid new feature, Inside The Rockers Studio. (Anyone wanna make an ITRS logo for us? E-mail me.)
