This was the 3rd release we produced as a band and on this one we tried a variety of different approaches as well as got more involved with the production process.
Five of the tracks were recorded totally live, with an expanded band with half a dozen extra players. The idea was to capture the energy of a live performance for the songs we felt really needed it. On other tracks, we went the opposite way and edited loops of the rhythm section together, and added layers of other parts in the box.
I also recorded some of the Andean themes at Hope Street on my recently acquired 4 tracks reel to reel.
