In the Episode
I talked to Alex about working on Greta Van Fleet’s second album, “The Battle At Garden’s Gate”. We discussed some of the wild techniques he used to capture sound (hint: there are lightbulbs involved), and how the band pushed him to achieve new highs and their vision. We also spoke about his studio setup and why he likes working with both Digital and Analog hardware, plus the current innovations in audio that excite him.
