Tape Notes

Feb 19 2019 • 1 hr 39 mins

In this episode John is joined by Gus Unger-Hamilton and Joe Newman from Alt-J, and producer Charlie Andrew to talk about how they recorded and produced the album 'RELAXER'.  The boys give a fascinating account of the thought processes and production techniques used in the recording of RELAXER.  Hear how a friend's pavlovian response to the smell of burning wood, the Gus whistle test, and swearing at an old school master all left their mark on the band's third album.  Tracks discussed: 3WW, House of the Rising Sun, Pleader   LINKS TO EVERYTHING TAPE NOTES    Listen to 'RELAXER' here.
