After writer and musician Daiquiri Rene Jones moved to Madison a few years ago, the trio Autographite coalesced around his heady, meandering spoken-word material. In the trio’s live sets, Spencer Bible uses guitar and electronics to conjure an improvised atmosphere, and hip-hop producer Coby Ashpis deploys samples that play off the themes in Jones’ dense narratives. Shortly after Autographite’s set this Saturday at Good Style Shop, Jones will be moving back to his native New Orleans and Ashpis will be moving to LA. The three joined me at WORT studios this week to discuss the story behind their unlikely collaboration, how Autographite challenges them as artists, and their plans to keep working together in the form of a new podcast.

I interviewed Ashpis about his solo work earlier this year, and Bible previously appeared on the Tone/WORT podcast to discuss his other band, Christian Dior.

The weekly Tone Madison/WORT-FM podcast is produced by Dylan Brogan. A shorter version airs weekly on WORT’s In Our Backyard news show.
