I was writing just before I rang you. I know you work off demos, and then the songs get recorded. How much of the original feeling, and the birth of the demos, manages to get retained once you deal with other collaborators and musical layering? The demos are not really blueprints for you. Yeah, they are. I always carry around with me extensive notes on the song, just reams of writing, just about how this song should be, what Album) feelings were when I wrote it, Ocean - Bonnie Pink - Even So (CD it should be delivered.
I mean the way I did the last album as well I put down all the vocals and guitars before we did anything else. And once the vocals and the guitars were done I had the right atmosphere and the right passion for that song; Album) then did we put on drums and bass.
Is it the writer in you, by putting on the guitars and the vocals of your lyrics for you by doing it first that way? Yeah, it is. His voice is remarkable. Beautiful and very moving. The new 12 tracks continue the teaming with Rob Ellis and Mick Harvey. Talk to me about the relationship Rob and Mick bring to your recordings. You seem locked in a groovy pocket with these guys. Brutally honest.
And they can be, you know, because we know each other so well. Your current recording was mixed by Victor Van Vugt. Did you want the vocals to be really heard on this album? I thought that these songs needed it. Does getting older add to the perspective of this record and the recording as well? Of course it does, it changes everything. The same way that we change every day. More open in terms of letting ideas come in, ideas at one time I would have completely disqualified immediately. Do you do a lot of takes and attempts at songs?
Do you do a lot of passes vocally when tracking songs? I always keep the first or second take. I hardly ever have to re-sing anything.
How do you record your vocals? Do you sing in the control room or use an isolation booth? A: No. During Is This Desire? I sang quite a few in the control room. It was like that on that record.
Most of the time, and certainly for this whole record, I wanted to be somewhat private, and somewhere unseen that I could make it my space. Does the isolation booth, out-of-sight-line vocal recording help concentration? Concentration is not the right word. I need to go right inside myself and to do that you just need a bit of space and a bit of time and you have to feel completely uninhibited like no one is watching you. And I did need warmth. I hate feeling cold. And I sang most of my vocals on this record with a beautiful view looking out across grass.
I hate singing in a place without a window. Hate it. I do all my work on headphones. Was it by design to return to the stripped down guitar-based sound of your previous albums? I also know there were a lot of things going on as far as layering of sound that I keep discovering on repeated listens. You seem so happy and content with your life, music and performing on stage.
No, it never feels therapeutic, ever. But yeah, I am as a person in a lot better state than I was three years ago. Modern Sounds in Country and Western Music. My Son, the Folk Singer.
