“A Body, Not Just a Brain”: An Interview with Shearwater’s Jonathan Meiburg

Worth reading in whole, but highlights:
JM: So I wanted to try to capture some of that energy in the recording itself. On this record, we didn’t have as many people working on the record—it was just me, Thor, and Kim, and then Danny, our engineer—so I did a lot more of the overdubs myself.


A: Will there be some big differences in the upcoming tour?

JM: We’re gonna have a totally different lineup. We’re gonna emphasize songs from the new record. It’s not that we’re not going to play any old songs, but I think it will have a different energy. Some people won’t like it as much. Other people will like it more.


Andy [Stack] is one of those completely amazing musicians who can play anything—he’s trained on upright bass. But he’s just a wonderful musical personality. I hope we can get him on our tour, but they've played like 220 shows since last year.


“Insolence” is probably my favorite song on the record—it goes the most places.
