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.
Today we have an interview with David Bazan. While controversial to some and always Pedro the Lion to others; he’s just a hard working dude who writes great tunes as far as we’re concerned. Brandon and Patrick discuss everything from what he uses to record, living room concerts vs. bigger venue shows, his writing process; press, media, and fame. Many thanks go out to Dave for taking the time out on the eve of his fall tour.
