Alejandro has been around, many bands and many heartbreaks later we get a new album. Basic tracks were done with Mitch Easter at his Fidelitorium in Kernersville, NC. The rest was recorded and produced by Chris Stamey at his Modern Recording in Chapel Hill, NC. Members of Superchunk, Mitch, Chris and Alejandro's band pitch in. Chris and the vastly under-rated Tim Harper do the mixing. Stamey's eye for clarity ensures that even the most musician-cluttered arrangements feel open, suiting the song's moods. A great album, where the powerful songwriting shines through.
