LatBotS - Behind the Scenes
Sonic Scoop has posted this fascinating article about the making of Love at the Bottom of the Sea. The piece mostly functions as an interview with engineer and frequent Merritt-collaborator Charles Newman, who divulges a wealth of information about his and Mr. Merritt's working process. He also mentions the sheerly massive amount of synthesizers used on the record, which is of course amongst the article's most titillating tidbits. Even detaching myself from my excitement over the release of the album, though, this article is really good and comes highly recommended.
