For David Nance, from Omaha, Nebraska, is this his first album recorded in a studio. Armed with guitars, cowbells, steel drums, vintage amps, Crazy Horse microphones, a mellotron, and a restless but tireless rhythm section consisting of Kevin Donahue and Tom May.
They went to the studio at sunrise and at midnight there were already 15 songs recorded. Perhaps it’s Midwestern work ethics, maybe it’s just fast thinking. But it certainly determines the sound of negative boogie.
“Some songs were unused for half a decade, some songs were changed the day before recording and some songs were recycled and reinterpreted from the last album leftovers,” according to the songwriter himself.
