This post is the first in a series that blatantly lifts from Pitchfork’s Guest List features.  But instead of asking bands I’ve never met to tell me what kind of chapstick they prefer, I’ll be asking my dear friends to tell me what kind of chapstick they prefer.  Well, not exactly, but whatev.

First up is the delightfully whimsical Nate Sweeney, a guy who always makes me giggle like a schoolgirl serial killer.  He also happens to be the drummer of my favorite band to arise in 2007: All These Teepees.
