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.
Anti-Folk is the genre we contemplate this week Sock Monkey Sound. You might be asking yourself "What the folk is Anti-Folk?", well don't be upset because most of us were too. Where does Folk end and Anti-Folk begin? Why do we even need to classify something like this? We definitely have questions but once again answers may elude us while picking apart Anti-Folk.
