My Morning Jacket bassist Two-Tone Tommy explained to Australia’s Beat magazine that even though some fans of the first few records were worried about the direction of the band’s sound once signed to a major, it was treated just like their earlier efforts. “We were going to make that same record regardless of what label was putting it out,” Tommy said. “It did help to have Nick Obolas (Studio Construction) and Danny Kadar (Engineer) there to kind of guide us in getting the right studio equipment, and helping us to do what we wanted to do without restrictions. We never thought about it commercially, we only thought about how the songs made us feel, since we’d been playing some of them live for a few years. We just wanted to document the band as it was for those years.”
