Mixtape 32 - Mitochondrion

Here is the 32nd installment of the Dreams of Consciousness podcast, featuring an interview with Shawn Haché of Mitochondrion.

The interview took place at Saint Vitus Bar in Brooklyn, where Mitochondrion played a show with Phobocosm, Auroch, and Artificial Brain (featured on the last podcast, and interviewed the same night).

Mitochondrion is a band that has both fascinated and bewildered me since I first heard them back in 2011. Due to the esoteric and challenging nature of their music, I have to admit I was fairly apprehensive about approaching them; of course, as is often the case, they couldn't have been nicer or more accommodating. We talked about the recent split release with Auroch, the status of the next Mitochondrion album, and the band's approach to writing music.

My thanks again to Shawn for taking the time to talk to me, and to you for listening.
