“Jon Spencer On The Liberation That Comes With A Stripped-Down Record”

http://seattle.cbslocal.com/2015/05/11/jon-spencer-on-the-liberation-that-comes-with-a-stripped-down-record/It’s a very, sort of, primitive setup. I feel like there is always so much going on in your songs-
I think that we’ve always been punk in that sense, you know, we have a limited power. There are only three of us, just two guitars and the drums. I think a lot of our music is working with the spaces between the notes, the blank spaces, the negative space …. The whole record is pretty stripped-down, there are no guests at all, it’s just us …. It was done with intention and was probably the reason we went to Daptone [House Of Soul] — they’re a studio that is renown for making great-sounding records in a very simple way, you know, old school, true to life, hears an honest to goodness live working band playing a song on the studio floor …. It can be liberating if you get rid of some options.”
