Welcome to Treehouse Sessions: twice a month, we present an exclusive live performances recorded directly to analog at Chicago’s Treehouse Studios.

On today’s episode, we’re kicking off 2015 on a loud note courtesy of Oxford, Mississippi garage-rock trio , Bass Drum of Death. In between blitzing performances of “Left For Dead” and “Sin Is In Ten”, from their 2014 release Rip This, the band sits down for a chat to discuss the music scene in Oxford and why frontman John Barrett added more people to the band instead of continuing it as a solo project.
