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 are joined by Crankupmadonna’s Shawn Ross and Chris Johnson. We shoot the sh*t with the guys about songwriting, Shawn’s time in one of our favorite bands, The Braves, songwriting, and what it takes to be the leader of a band. We also are premiering tracks off their new record Hit The Sound.
