As part of my Chicago music podcast, Indiesomnia!, I get to tape a lot of interviews and live music sessions with bands. The most recent of these to see the bright light of internet day was a solo interview and live acoustic session with Stan McConnell, the lead singer-songwriter of Chicago indie folk/rock outfit Santah.
The band has had a good year, including the release of their first full-length album, White Noise Bed (which the band has available for online listening and download here), and are gearing up to headline Schubas Tavern tomorrow night (Wednesday, December 22). Stan had some interesting things to say in the interview about the group's origins and musical style, his approach to songwriting, as well as the band's plans for 2011. The podcast is streaming online for free at the Indiesomnia website, and advance tickets to tomorrow night's show at Schubas are available here.
