Jukebox the Ghost has traveled all the way from New York to join us in studio this week on Shortwave. Grant-Lee Phillips sits down with Ben, Tommy, and Jesse to chat about the dizzying and melodically haunting world that is Jukebox the Ghost. They discuss the arduous track selection process, how the writing process is divided, being apprehensive when bringing a personal song to the group, writing strange parts to compensate for a bass player, and play tracks off their latest album, “Safe Travels.”
