When indie-rock outfit The Broken West called it quits in 2009, it had two full-length records to its name. Now, two years later, lead singer Ross Flournoy has returned with his new group, Apex Manor, and released what could have been that beloved band's third album, The Year of Magical Drinking.

Listen to Flournoy discuss the album's origins with host David Dye, and perform four songs live in the WXPN studio.
