In honor of September 8, Aquarium Drunkard has posted an old Silver Jews song, from a session they did at WFMU back in 2008. It features our old friend William Tyler, who played for us last August:

On September 8, 2008, David Berman rolled his touring band into WFMU‘s New Jersey studio to record a live set for Benjamin Walker’s show. Berman — who by this point had played live less than a hundred times in his band’s twenty year career — sounds like his pre-Lookout Mountain, Lookout Sea self; the sense of confidence that rings through that record is suddenly notable for its absence here. But his crackerjack band, which includes experimental guitarist William Tyler, spitshine the lo-fi off that back catalogue, giving Starlite Walker standout “Trains Across the Sea” the trad-Nashville sheen it never knew it needed. Less than four months later, Silver Jews would be no more.

A doozy indeed. Listen here, or check out the whole session at the Free Music Archive.
