Episode 105: Alexis Fleisig & Sohrab Habibion


Alexis & Sohrab play in one of our favorite Brooklyn-based bands, Obits, but you may know them from their respective work in Girls Against Boys and Edsel. These two childhood pals stopped by Rubber Tracks to talk about their intense attention to detail when it comes to all things sonic, how the nascent D.C. punk scene informs the way they approach things today and what it’s like performing alongside Rick Froberg from Hot Snakes & Drive Like Jehu onstage. We can’t promise that listening to this podcast with make your band as tight as Obits, but it will give you some insight into why they sound so flawless both live and in the studio.
