Less Ready To Go was recorded at Hi-Dez in Joshua Tree. It happened quickly. For each song, we'd do a take, then switch instruments and do a live overdub on top. It was a fresh way to work. Going in, I was sure I had at least one song to do - we started there, and a couple days later it felt like a record was finished. I got scooped up by whatever happened those couple days - felt good to be moving. Any time I try to contrast one record, or process, from the previous one, it becomes more clear that it's all pretty much the same thing. I think I've been 'working on an album' every day for the last 12 years, yet I always feel under prepared. I'm lucky to get to make music with people whose energy can supersede my self-doubt. That's the thread through all this.
