JAMES IHA - LOOK TO THE SKY + Bonus Tracks w/ David Jepsen

We end 2022 by covering the 2012 James Iha solo album "Look To The Sky", the sonically ambitious follow-up to Iha's first solo album "Let It Come Down". Pat remains out and Frank battles a cold but here to help Frank cover this overlooked gem is Patreon member and Aussie Pumpkinhead David Jepsen!

We talk about the album's excellent production, James gettin' sleazy by aping Iggy Pop, "Sad Happy Songs" and the incredible stable of James' talented friends appearing on the album including Karen O & Nick Zinner of the Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Adam Schlesinger of Fountains of Wayne, Nina Persson of The Cardigans, Sara Quin of Tegan and Sara, Mike Garson, Tom Verlaine of Television and Nathan Larson of Shudder to Think.
