Ep. #29: Sohrab Habibion of Obits

Sohrab Habibion is a multi-talented musician, graphic artist, recording engineer, and generally great person who currently lives in Brooklyn, NY. For close to a decade, he played in the Washington D.C.-based band Edsel before they broke up in the late nineties. He now sings and plays guitar in Obits, one of America’s best surf-y, garage rock bands, whose gritty, powerful, third album, Bed & Bugs is available everywhere on Sept. 10 via Sub Pop Records. The band, which also features bassist Greg Simpson, drummer Alexis Fleisig, and vocalist/guitarist Rick Froberg, is touring the U.S. and Canada beginning Sept. 21, including stops at Montreal’s Il Motore on Oct. 3, Toronto’s Horseshoe Tavern on Oct. 4, and the Biltmore Cabaret in Vancouver on Nov. 14. Here Habibion provides a full-on LP preview, complete with Vine-sized song excerpts and track-by-track anecdotes.
