Bring On Your Mastodon

When I try to overcome a problem in a new way, only to find myself doing what I’ve always done, that’s when I can’t help but feel like my hard-wiring is running the show. After spending years on mixing the previous album, I told myself that I’d record everything better next time around. This way I wouldn’t fall into the details during the mixing process. I armed myself with a whole new set of microphones and recorded some serious takes. But a few weeks into mixing I reverted back to my established, time-consuming methods. Now I’m a 35-year-old teenager with wrinkles.
