Stream a new Restorations song “Misprint” on Stereogum

Today, Restorations unleashed another new track from LP3 called “Misprint” via Stereogum. Destined to become a fan favorite, the song is droney in nature, thanks in part to the back-and-forth sway of the band’s impeccable rhythm section, while lead guitarist Dave Klyman’s delicate melody brightens the track and guest trombonist Benjamin Lanz (Beirut/The National) ties it all together. As a whole, the entire song serves as the ultimate showcase for singer/guitarist Jon Loudon’s damn near perfected scruffy growl.
