When I listen to Raise, I hear a lot of Dinosaur Jr. worship going on. You guys really work the guitar effects (wah pedals especially) and your vocals are buried. Any accuracy to this perception? And why is your singing so low in the mix?
Adam Franklin: Dinosaur were a big influence around the time of You’re Living All Over Me and Bug, for sure. I don’t really know why the vocals were so low but I certainly wasn’t that confident with the vocals at the time plus it was also perhaps a prevailing stylistic trend at the time.
