One Question Interviews: Thou

Thou

SPB: What is your favorite part about the recording process? 

Andy: Overdubs, without a doubt. James Whitten, our recording guy/sound guru, is really good at helping us create outlandish sounds that end up sitting way back in the mix. I sometimes wonder if people listening to our records even notice them. Sometimes it's just banging on a metal chair with a stick, and other times it's linking up 3 heads and 3 cabs and creating walls of feedback. After a lot of painstaking tracking where every note counts, it's good to just let loose and make noise. 

Mitch: The first time we hear playback of the first thing we recorded is my favorite part. It's nice to step outside of the song and actually listen to it. That, or watching Bryan make goofy faces while recording vocals. 

Josh: The first playback is usually the first time I'll be able to actually hear my drums in the context of the song, so that's a neat thing. And the last handful of sessions we've done have all been at Living Room Studios in Algiers, LA, and it's just an extremely comfortable place to spend a few hours working on music. I enjoy that aspect of recording, as well.
