Ruben Zarate of Dante Elephante joins us today on WASTOIDS. His new album is called Mid-Century Modern Romance, out now on Born Losers Records, and it finds him sprinkling his classic pop songwriting with disco and R&B flavors. Ruben’s also the host of the Dante Elephante Podcast, which drops new episodes every Tuesday. It features talks with guests like Sadgirl, Ron Sexsmith, Chris Cohen, and more—and Ruben’s conversational style, as you’ll hear right now, is breezy and a lot of fun. He joins us to discuss the new record and his dream encounter with official WASTOIDS hero Harry Nilsson.
