Local band Fort Frances sits down with CHIRP DJ Julie Mueller in their West Loop rehearsal space for a light-hearted discussion on how they describe their sound, what the label "pop music" means to the band and the important contribution of Jeff's "bass face" to the group. Things turn philosophical in regards to how listeners currently digest music and how the band would be "f*#&cked" without a desire to make "popular music."
Fort Frances is currently in Maine finishing their upcoming record. You can catch Fort Frances at Lincoln Hall on December 12.
