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.
We tight roll our jeans with Jesse Carmona & Phil Goudreau from Crankupmadonna. In addition to bad 90s fashion trends we also talk about their former band The Braves, nerd out on Magic the Gathering, Weezer, and awesome record covers by crap bands. Guest host Paul Karnatz takes the reigns on Word Association. Featured music by OK Go Minus the Bear The Braves Stendek The Constellations The Lustkillers
