PM production: Severed Together

Severed Together is Outer Gods' fifth album, a production that unquestionably pushed me past my limits in engineering and recording in general. I'm glad this all came to fruition, as most of the material came together due to the duo's live soundtracks, there were a series of cut-up and splicing techniques used to forge shorter songs. Somehow I think of this as the most "organic" Outer Gods album, though that term seems relative in light of all the synthesizer and treated electric organ work on this album. John from Bataille came to work on the sessions with his typically open mind about things, which always makes for a pleasant recording experience.
