10 Albums: Daniel Dewitt and Dan Gleason of Winston Audio

by Peter Lindblad — Smoldering organ, slightly corrosive guitars with a Southern accent, hooks that drag rivers for dead bodies, the occasional blast of smog-covered horns and unexpectly sweet harmonies — that’s what Winston Audio is made of.
Formed in 2003, the Atlanta-based rockers the quintet brought forth its first EP, Come On, Hibernate, in July 2006. A full-length, The Red Rhythm, on the Favorite Gentlemen label, is due out in February 2010.

“I come from a family of musicians and weirdo artists for the most part, and for that I am thankful,” says Bernhard.
