yo everyone! i'm making this record with the band at the moment, so I can vouch the word "gravitate" doesn't have any sort of tuning on it. I go through everything by hand and occasionally we nudge a pitch here and there on a performance that really felt magical rather than using a take that was more technically accurate but perhaps had less gravitas. I could leave these things alone and the emotional impact would be just as sound, but as a culture our sense of pitch has historically become more acute over the years. rest assured ben is KILLING it (not to mention rico and augie), and this record will really raise the bar for this band. couldn't be more pumped to be making music with these guys.
