We'll listen to Fireside Collective burnin' up Studio B right after the 4th of July, playing tunes from their album Life Between the Lines – and a couple of surprising covers. Also, in celebration of the new album by the Los Angeles indie band Dawes, we'll jump in our time machine and check out a 2012 session with them.
