Hey everyone, my name is Erik Ratensperger and welcome to the first episode of Micro Spy, a podcast that takes a closer look at the lives and work of musicians and creatives I admire.
My first guest is Sean Leary of the San Francisco-based hard-core band Loma Prieta. I first met Sean in 2019 when I reached out to him to see if Loma would like to join my band Jeromes dream on our first tour in 18 years.
I fell in love with their blistering and beautiful version of hardcore, their aesthetic, and the instant resonance I had specifically with their song, “Love”, the opening track on their full-length album, Self Portrait, released on Deathwish in 2015.
I can keep going on about how much I love this band and how much of a privilege it was to tour and get to know them this summer, but I’d like to dive right into my conversation with Sean where we talk about his musical history, his influences and how he is still obsessed with making music, the process, and what’s next.
