B-Side Dreams 167 - Anders & Daniel of The Ocean in Films (formerly Evening Empire)

This week I interview Anders Carpenter and Daniel Hildebrand of Evening Empire (who have since been issued a cease and desist and have changed their name to The Ocean in Films). They discuss the band's forthcoming album Cruel Vestige, out this fall. We will listen to a few teaser tracks and a playlist Anders compiled of musical influences.
