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 had the opportunity to talk with singer-songwriter Cory Branan while he was stuck in Chicago traffic. Mississippi native Branan has acheived critical praise for his album 12 Songs, often being likened to John Prine, and has toured with his friends Lucero. Cory is out on tour now playing many dates across the country with Drag the River, with make sure you catch them live.
