Based in Rockford, Illinois, Sock Monkey Sound is a music and culture podcast. We have conversations about the state of music and culture in our world, picking apart musical genres while exploring the boundaries of our own perceptions and taste. Notable guests on our podcast have included Ian MacKaye (Fugazi), Colin Hay (Men At Work), Eric Bachmann (Crooked Fingers/Archers of Loaf), Hutch Harris (The Thermals), David Bazan and Dan Deacon, as well as members of The Dandy Warhols, Superchunk, Built To Spill, The Dismemberment Plan, Tokyo Police Club and many more.
On this weeks show it's all about being sloth-like as we dig deep into the genre of Slowcore. "Slowcore is a fusion genre of indie rock and sadcore, characterised by minimal musical backing played at extremely slow speeds. Slowcore songs feature "depressing lyrics", according to Listverse. Guitars are normally clean and undistorted but often feature heavy use of reverb."-Wikipedia
