Late commenting here, but what a great song. Oddly I find that what originally drew me to TW in a real way were lyrics. I remember going through the shit (not in Nam, of course), transferred colleges, new major, broke, knew zero people, and working two full-time jobs to pay for school. And I would drive to this shitty little office a bit out of town to write some code and I would listen to The Soft Drugs In Moderation, over and over, every morning and all day. And at some point after that I found myself spinning Blue Laws only, period. I tend to put things on repeat. I guess this is a tangent but I think TW's songwriting is just so overlooked somehow, lyrically and musically.
To segue - TW, in what order did you record the 7 tracks live for this tune? Especially if you're doing a single live take - does that change how you would "build the loop", so to speak? Like how Jon Brion often performs at the Largo by himself like this by building song elements into loops as he plays live. I realize that's not what you're doing here but I imagine you have a fairly standard workflow - e.g., first record drums to a click, then rhythm guitar, etc. If you already discussed this in an interview somewhere or something just point me along...
I know you asked once somewhere if anyone cared about the videos and the camera work - I CARE! Being able to see you record / play is as close as I can get to seeing you play live, and aside from that, I love learning about the process in general and how you personally approach it, just by watching. I enjoy the interviews you've done too, which in my opinion makes these video recordings of audio recordings that much better and informative. Anyway - if you have the time and the wherewithal and the inclination, I love these videos; thank you.
Also everyone should listen and buy because good things await those who do:https://twwalsh.bandcamp.com/track/born-hungry
