Mostly, tunes to come alive in the control room of SG’s synth farm at Hilda Labs. Not so differently from how things were done on Avenue 40 in Highland Park back in the dark ages, when SG started recording demos on a 4-track Fostex cassette machine. Sometimes, nearly fully-formed songs bubble up from the swamp of soundscapes at BS’s studio, Barefoot Music. Things bounce around, and tunes that stick get words dropped on them pretty quickly. Then they’re acid-tested in live rehearsal, and it’s here that CD begins to lay in flute and/or guitars. If a song won’t come alive, we let it die. There’s always more. —TD
