The abrasive avant-rock trio Jobs, who play Monday July 20 at Mickey's Tavern, formed in 2008 in New York City, and the members have since spread out, with bassist Rob Lundberg living in Madison (for more about Rob specifically, catch up on our interview with him from back in March) and the other members split between NYC and Boston. This month brings the release of a new Jobs album, Killer Bob Sings, titled in honor of the band's original name, Killer BOB, and in honor of the fact that it's their first album to incorporate vocals. Currently on tour, the band called us from the road earlier this week to talk about the evolution of their live set, the work that went into the new album, and how they're trying to make their challenging music more accessible. Thanks to Dylan Brogan for producing the piece for WORT-FM. A shorter version of the piece ran earlier this week on WORT's In Our Backyard news show.
