We want things to sound rough and blown out, real organic. We want to use that really nice equipment, but we want to use it wrong. Push it to where it’s not supposed to be, just like they used to do at Sun Records before they knew better. We’ve been in a couple studios and people don’t want you fuckin’ with their little baby microphones and shit like that. ‘This is the level it is to be recorded at.’ [in a monotone, robotic voice]
