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.
Angel Deradoorian released a solo album last year during off time with her full-time gig as a member of the Dirty Projectors. She discusses the writing and recording of Mind Raft, her solo EP from 2009, as well as what is going on with Dirty Projectors, working with the likes of David Byrne and Bjork, and playing Madison Square Garden.
