“Once I’m writing for the band, I’m at all times making an attempt to consider doing issues Lou and Murph would match into,” Mascis stated in a press release. “For myself, I’m pondering extra about what I can do with simply an acoustic guitar, even for the leads. In fact, this time, I added full drums and electrical leads, though the rhythm components are nonetheless all acoustic. Often, I attempt to do the solo stuff extra just so I can play it on my own, however I actually needed so as to add the drums. As soon as that began, every little thing else simply fell into place. So it ended up sounding much more like a band report. I dunno why I did that precisely, nevertheless it’s simply what occurred.”

I attempted taking part in some keyboards on the primary Fog album, however I’m actually solely comfy taking part in the white notes, so it’s form of limiting. [laughs] These days, I might simply flip the pitch on a mini Mellotron to play completely different sounds, however black keys simply appear laborious. For no matter cause, I similar to banging on the white ones. Looks as if it’s more durable to determine stretch your fingers across the different ones.”
