All the songs were sung and played live, no punch-ins or computer edits, just complete takes. The best take wins. It’s a sturdy mirror and a critical reference point for a new artist doing his first EP alone in the studio, where distortions and expectations quickly undertake reality. I wanted to juxtapose the pro tools, auto tune world of popular music of 55 vocal takes cut up to make songs and performers sound perfect.
All the tracks were recorded in Late September and October at Trout Recording studio in Gouwanus area of Brooklyn. The studio is owned by Bryce Goggin (Antony and the Johnsons, Pavement, Luna, Joan As Police Woman) but the tracks were recorded by his first assistant Adam Sachs. Adam also was the co-producer and helped mix all the tracks. The two band tracks were filled out by the Oren Bloedow of Elysian Fields fame (a major cult NYC art rock band) on bass, tremolo guitar and organ and Tony Leone on drums.
