Thin Lips on Audiotree | still from video

During their recent tour across the northeast and midwest, Thin Lips found time to stop by Audiotree’s Chicago headquarters to record a session — or as the band put it, “a pass/fail test of our live set.” The 34-minute session is a resounding pass if you ask us, spotlighting seven tracks off the Philly band’s new album Chosen Family, which was released in September.

Vocalist/guitarist Chrissy Tashjian leads the band through each song seamlessly, breaking only to answer a few interview questions. The host broaches a topic familiar to many in the Philly music community, that of day jobs, and Tashjian shares that she’s done everything from remodeling homes to walking dogs; the members of Thin Lips also talk about their background playing music together, writing Chosen Family, and tell some wild tour stories.

Thin Lips open for The Starting Line on December 15 at the newly-renamed Franklin Music Hall (formerly Electric Factory), and as hinted at in the session, it sounds like they’ll be back on the road in January.
