Singer Jamila Woods and Ohmme's Macie Stewart and Sima Cunningham are ubiquitous collaborators working at the heart of Chicago's diverse and vibrant music scene. Between them they've worked with Wilco, Chance the Rapper, Twin Peaks, Vic Mensa and many more, and also release their own fantastic records. On the latest episode of the Talkhouse Podcast, the old friends catch up backstage at Pitchfork Music Festival 2017. Their wonderfully Chicago-centric talk takes in the city's vital musical infrastructure, free jazz, the Brown Girls web series, and how amazing sci-fi author Octavia Butler is. Oh, and Talkhouse Music Editor-in-Chief Amy Rose Spiegel gets me to revisit my pre-adolescent singing voice.
