Three years after nearly breaking up, Madison-bred/Chicago-based rock band Slow Pulp have risen to become critically-revered Midwestern darlings, earning nods from major publications and touring with the likes of Alex G and Post Animal. But the road to their own solo debut, Moveys, was paved in hellish conditions: personal health struggles, a near-fatal car crash, and the threat of a global pandemic. This episode finds all four Slow Pulp members dialoguing with Michael about how their art has mirrored their lives, and how they’ve developed the urgency and honesty required to reflect their growth back out to the world.
