Every week, the State of Sound podcast welcomes an artist from our monthly concert series into the studio to go deep on one of their songs. For more info on the live show, including how to get tickets, visit the event page.

This week’s guest is another member of our very first lineup from the relaunched State of Sound back in February: Sleepy Gaucho, the project of Milwaukee’s Andy Goitia.

Goitia says he’s been on a chase to write music that’s upbeat yet laid back, with nods to ’70s yacht rock and A.M. radio. The resulting tunes revel in funky guitar and keyboard lines, saxophone solos and falsetto, calling to mind the heyday of artists like Steely Dan and the Bee Gees.

As we release this episode, Sleepy Gaucho is on the verge of celebrating the release of a brand-new record, True Love Corridor with a show at Vivarium this Friday, March 15 (also featuring Ellie Jackson and Moonglow). We chat on his throwback sounds while diving into one of Sleepy Gaucho’s softer selections, “Deep Blue.”

To hear that and more songs from True Love Corridor, use the player at the top of the page or your podcatcher of choice. And don’t forget to swing by the State of Sound event page for tickets to our next live show April 6 featuring Hanna Simone, JINKSIE, Wire & Nail, and Allison Mahal.
