GRAMMY.com recently spoke to Eric D. Johnson of Fruit Bats – “a band for right now” – about new album A River Running To Your Heart. Fruit Bats has had a great few years since signing to Merge Records, and Johnson has also had success as part of the Bonny Light Horsemen project. “It’s been kind of a weird few years of craziness, basically,” he says.
