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.
In this New Years Eve edition of the Sock Monkey Sound podcast we’re presenting an interview with Channy Leaneagh of the band Polica. Channy got her start in the popular Minneapolis band Roma di Luna which disbanded in early 2011. Producer Ryan Olsen drafted her to sing on his Gayngs "Relayted" album which led to the current collaboration on Polica’s forthcoming record Give You The Ghost. Check out Polica at thisispolica.com
