A diehard fan of Grizzly Bear, named August March, gets Ian to talk about his craft in Albuquerque's Alibi.
Ian breaks down his flute playing and a reason it's important for him to use humor in song writing. "If it has to do with spiritual matters, politics, genocide, climate change or sustainability, then I approach those issues musically. I have to be optimistic. As a species, we are extraordinarily creative, but we also do quite a bit of damage to the planet. These are very worrying times, but long-term our species has proven very resilient."
Ian plays Albuquerque on Sept. 21
