Hot off their new album, “Get Up In It!” I get a chance to talk to Tom McDowall and Albert C. Perez of the band the Dropsteppers. We talk about what brought the band together, how they developed their sound and what it was like to get an e-mail from Bucket Hingley. We also discus the inspiration behind the song “Bring It On Home To You” and take a listen to it in this episode.
