Their self-titled debut, was recorded in Portland, OR using old-school techniques and gear – loud and live to analog tape in one big room. “We wanted to capture the band in a great sounding studio and concentrate on making the best use of the fewest tracks”, says singer/guitarist Geoff Metts. “Everybody has access to digital recording and limitless tracks, they can quantize them and auto tune them, but the result often sounds stale. We went the other way recording live to tape capturing the highest fidelity tracks with as few overdubs and edits as possible”. MRC took the analog idea further by releasing the music on vinyl records as well as discs and downloads.
