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 welcome KOJI and Into It. Over It. (aka-Evan Thomas) to Sock Monkey Sound this week. Evan is a singer/songwriter and New Jersey native that moved to Chicago a couple years ago while KOJI is an musician, artist, and activist from Pennsylvania. We talk about Darth Vader toast, creepy bald dudes, Evan’s 52 Weeks project, KOJI’s involvement with Invisible Children, and play an explosive game of Word Association.
