You spent years in production with this record. Talk about that process and who you worked with.
We went in to the studio with Kevin Bowe (The Replacements, Meat Puppets), originally just to record a single, then it turned in to an EP, and then we just kept going. He understood the way that I worked and he worked around that to get it all together. We just kept working on stuff till we felt like we had the record we wanted. He made it all seem like it was still a very personal record. He recorded us in studios and then in basements, and then he even let me take some mics so I could continue to do all my vocals in my bedroom. It still just feels like that personal indie project we started years ago.
