Note from Emily

I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since we made ‘Poseidon and the Bitter Bug’. Matt Chamberlain, our drummer for ‘Poseidon…’ only had four days available (he is one of the most in-demand drummers in the world), so we cut 10 band songs in four days. I found the pace to be exhilarating and the decision making process to be unencumbered by the luxury of time. We had to go with our gut on performances. Sometimes in the studio, the more you belabor things, the less energized they become. So I really feel that the particular pace of making this record was helped by our limited budget and schedule. Working with Mitchell Froom is a fantastic experience, and he played all over this record (thankfully!) and elevated the songs to a new level.

Note from Amy

Hey there, I am writing because it’s been a while. I am listening to Bon Iver, hanging in Georgia for a week before we leave for Singapore to play the Mosaic Music Festival. I know, it’s a little crazy, but I think well worth the flight over there. We’ll meet other bands and see a place we’ve never seen. It’s one of those early spring days when you feel the itch, but you know winter’s not done. It feels pretty peaceful after the last crazy week of IG activity. Two of my dogs are passed out on the office floor, after a two-hour hike in the woods. read the rest of the blog at: http://www.indigogirls.com/correspondence/2009/2009-03-07-a.html
