Jeffrey Lewis and saxophonist Noah Becker plow through a twofer of essential New York tunes: "Streets of New York," which Lewis describes as "a laundry list of New York hardships," as well as "New York's All Right if You Like Saxophones," which he modernizes by throwing in references to Kmart and Starbucks.
