Thank you so much for being an awesome magazine and actually asking real questions. The tame impala interview rocks, i love the before and after.

The greatest thing is realizing both records are done on Boss Multi-Track recorders, which many here would say are pieces of crap and not professional. Instead they are major releases that garner serious interest and accolades. I love this so much. Thank you for talking about that with them in the interview and again asking what they recorded the second record on. I feel so inspired to go write music now knowing that a sweet band uses shitty gear and doesn't even care, because in the end it's all about the music. bravo tape op

I can't wait to read this. Love that band.

Funny, but in a bunch of EPK videos for the latest record, there is A LOT of gear in Kevin's bedroom studio, including a MBP, Mackie Onyx FW mixer, etc. Curious as to how the boss recorder fits in to the whole thing.

the article explains it all, and is a fabulous read. it's 2 parts, one interview around the first record time, and the second interview at the second record time. so you get to see the growth, creative process and how they've changed/stayed the same. good stuff.
