Yeah, it's a way of kind of cleansing the palette, and clearing the table.
And it's fun Can you tell me a bit about the writing process behind this new album as it doesn't sound like it's cut from quite the same cloth as your previous records?
“Family pressure of, ‘If you haven’t seen the world, then who the fuck are you? And so I tried.” Whereas Gulag was inspired by Balkan folk music, each successive album had a distinct geographical feel, from French chanson-influenced The Flying Club Cup to March of the Zapotec, inspired by a trip to Oaxaca, Mexico, and True Detective director Cary Fukunaga.“March of the Zapotec started as a soundtrack for Cary Fukunaga for a film called Sin Nombre,” recalls Condon.
“He sent me these recordings of all these different regions in Mexico, and this one caught my mind to the extent that I started to get a little too obsessed with it.” Fukunaga showed him string orchestras from Huapango in the Yucatan Peninsula, as well as funereal brass bands from Oaxaca.
And for this album, the approach was very different.
