Coalt: "We did a big chunk and then we didn't do anything for a while because we didn't have any money. We'd go in once every month or so when we could afford more studio time. It was pay as you play."

Coalt: "We all four sing so we spent a lot of times on the vocals. The vocals are usually what makes or breaks it. It's not like we're doing anything that can't be done but the singing is what determines if the average Joe is going to like it."
Sauers: "If the vocals are bad, it doesn't matter what's going on behind it."
Brockman: "We do actual four-part harmonies and Gary helped us a lot with that. As a horn player, he's good at arrangements and layering sounds."

Coalt: "There were all kinds of reasons to use Gary, but I didn't even think about the vocals and that was huge for us. He's very decisive. He gives you what you want. Everybody has their own interpretation of what they want their sound to be and he was able to do that and still bring his quality of expertise to the recording."
Coalt: "We tried to get a few people in to add some things but we couldn't get anything worked out. We had some great ideas but we had to reel things in because of our financial constraints. On the flipside, it's cool to have our debut album just be the four of us."
Love: "We'll be able to take more liberties on the next album but for the first one, this is what we are."
