Tape Notes

TN:16 Alt-J & Charlie Andrew

February 19, 2019

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
