Jeff McIlwain’s music has been providing a buoyant soundtrack for my life (and long runs!) for a number of years now. In my excitement about his latest release as Lusine, I reached out to his label, Ghostly International, to set up an interview and they kindly obliged. Jeff and I chat here about the path that led him to success as an electronic musician, his fondness for manipulating vocal tracks, and his latest album, Sensorimotor.
I started out the show with a bunch of updates about what I am up to in the coming months. I love a bulleted list:

* The second annual MikeyPod Live! podcast will be on June 28th in NYC. More details TBA
* I’ll be presenting with Eban Crawford at Moogfest 2017 in Durham, NC. May 18-21
* The Animal Show Summer Tour kicks off in Houston, TX on July 8th.
* I’m a featured guest on today’s episode of the Powerpress Podcast.

Thanks for checking out the podcast!  I have some great guests on deck for future episodes including musician Walker Lukens and performance artist Adrienne Truscott, so please subscribe in iTunes or your podcatcher of choice.
