Akron indie band Ledges has released a new 80's-infused album that's much more polished than the band's previous work.

The friends that have been playing together since high school have recorded mostly on their own in a basement. This past year, they made their first full-length album in Nashville -- for free.

For this week's Shuffle, Andy Hoffman of Ledges talks about going from DIY to Music Row.
