hanging out with audiophiles

Dec 24, 2021

Welcome to Crimble escape pod EP 91. 

Happy to share this chat with Jonathan Rado !

You may know him from his band Foxygen or perhaps his productions with 

 The Killers,  The Lemon Twigs, Tim Heidecker, Whitney, Alex Cameron, Father John Misty or perhaps Weyes Blood?

I had a blast meeting him in the covid lull a while back where we had a rare face to face chinwag.

We talk about his work with the killers, his come up and his early sonic adventures. How Richard Swift was a hugely pivotal force, both as a musical inspiration and then as a teacher. We get into his working alongside the magical Shawn Everett on many projects and the secret of his success in terms of the mystical “Rado effect”!


In the nitty I get into the rare world of the double head. Yes, not one but 2 Neumann ku100s were used to produce this one. Working a little with the idea of creating a far far away mic fade. We shall answer the age old question, are 2 heads are better than 1? Check it 


I chat about my new big modular case. A thing of astounding beauty. Crafted by one of the best. A tremchap named Brock from Emc

More on that and my secret next purchase soon
