“As Sarah Versprille and Daniel Hindman turned their attention to the follow up to last year’s Moon Tides, the duo’s core ambition was to avoid the patterns of every indie dream-pop record out at the moment. They enlisted John Congleton (St Vincent, Swans, Angel Olsen, the Walkmen) as producer, who encouraged them to tinker with gear, skew arrangements and strip their compositions of complexity. “John pushed us to not make cliches, to not play into the style of other bands,” says Hindman. “He tricked me with the guitars on the album. We got the basic tracks down and he asked me to do scratch guitar and then [use] analog gear, with virtually no plug-ins or effects added afterwards, no hiding behind multiple layers. There aren’t a lot of tricks; what you hear is naturally what’s there.”” — via The Guardian
