When it came to working in the studio to record our CD 10+1, we brought in some examples of records we loved, records we listened to over and over, records we could play without wearing them out, without tiring our ears. We wanted a record to use as our sonic template. Cat Power’s “The Greatest” was our number one choice. There’s something about the warm sound of the bass and the drums, about how the guitar and keyboards are layered, and how they all provide a great sonic foundation for Chan Marshall’s soulful vocals. Chan Marshall assembled an amazing band of Memphis musicians to create a joyful noise. The sound is lush, dense, airy, and alive. That was our target. It’s good to have a target. – Jammer
Very nice! I like knowing this, it’s fun. I’m also inspired to buy her record now!
