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.
Ryan Hahn of the band Local Natives joins us on the show today. Local Natives released their debut album Gorilla Manor in February 2010 on French Kiss Records and since then have been playing great shows all across the country in support. We caught up with Ryan while the band was getting ready to play a show in Birmingham, Alabama. Enjoy!
