Will Fussell of Mood Rings' top 5 pieces of musical ephemera from 2013

Mood Rings is back in town after a lengthy bit of touring over the last year, and the group has some new tunes to show off. Last week, the band played a handful of unreleased numbers during a live session at Georgia Tech's 91.1 FM/WREK. Find the full set list at the bottom of the post.

Tonight (Sat., Jan. 18), Mood Rings will be rolling out some newer numbers again when the group headlines a show at the EARL. But before the group takes the stage, frontman Will Fussell talked with us about his time on the road last year, and some of his favorite album covers, music videos, merchandise, and posters that he encountered along the way.
