Famiglietti: I heard it when I was 13, and I was told at the time that every rock critic in the world agreed unanimously that the Stooges’ Funhouse is the greatest recording of all time. It was the Citizen Kane of records. It was the first CD I ever bought and I was, like, “I’m listening to the greatest rock & roll record of all time.” And I believed it until I was about 18. I’d tell people, and they’d be, like, “What are you, stupid?”
MY BLOODY VALENTINE
Famiglietti: We’ve been getting a lot of comparison to My Bloody Valentine on this album, which is cool. Vocally, that was an influence. We bury the vocals a lot in the mix, which maybe we did too much on the first record. There are a lot of things we’re still figuring out. It’s an evolution. The vocals are going to become more and more present as the albums progress and we figure out how to record them properly and how to make them communicate themselves properly within the songs.
Keyes: If there’s one record in recent memory that really stands out to us, it’s Feels.
Duzsik: It sounds unique and completely new, yet it has the dynamics and changes and hallmarks of a rock record. It is very much something we respect. It’s an indie record that can stand against real records, classics in your collection, and you can say, “This is good.” It’s the one record, since we’ve been a band, that has come out and feels like it’s part of this pantheon of great records.
