"It felt like a form of reflection, and self-reflection, to take your own voice and manipulate or destroy it or tweak it," says Longstreth."The overt technological tweaking is one aspect of the vocal character of the record. I lived with these songs for a long time, sang them a lot before putting them on the record.A melody is like a path, and I took myself down the path a lot."I was ready to relate to music in a different way," he continues, "and to work not just on music with other people, but as a collaborator for other people.
