STEREOGUM: Now that the record is about to be mixed, how long is it? I had heard that you guys were making a double record.
JARMAN: It’s the biggest problem that we have right now, and just before you called I was actually fielding a few emails between me and my brother arguing back and forth because we’re mastering on Wednesday so we have to have it fully decided by Wednesday, and we’re really kind of in battle because we’ve got twenty-one tracks now. The reason being is that like I said after Johnny left it was sort of a — it kind of snapped us out of the idea of taking time off and we really just worked very quickly. Once you get working and once things are going well you don’t really feel like capping it just because you’ve got enough tracks, so we kept on working pretty much all of 2011. So we’ve got twenty-one songs now and it’s just about choosing what’s going to go on the record, really, cause this minute we’ve got the record whittled down to fourteen — which sounds kind of long–but it’s going to be 45 minutes and fourteen tracks. That leaves us like seven tracks left. There’s actually a couple more that we haven’t recorded yet either, so we’re just gonna keep recording, I think. We’re just gonna keep going. We’re probably not gonna do a double album, because we’ve always believed that you should never give people too much. You should always let people get to the end of the record and be like “Oh…is it over already?” So we’re probably gonna try to put another record out — maybe try and release two records next year? That’s kind of the idea so far. We’ve got enough songs, but we’re really enjoying writing and recording. Usually after making the record I’m kind of burnt out, but right now I really feel excited. That’s why I’m in the basement right now, that’s where I do my demos. I’m still working on stuff.

Back in the days when you couldn't even think of the possibility of downloading an album, a double album was an album that long, it had to be pressed on two LPs or two cassettes. When an album is pressed on more discs nowadays, they do it for quality or whatever. It's still 'an album', not 'a double album'. I'm old...

I've made a promise to myself to only listen to the songs I have already heard cause I really don't want to be spoiled with the others. Bolthole does sound amazing I really can't wait to play it on full volume! And Anna sounds really good too, reminds me of the first album production wise but then you can tell they've progressed since then at the same time. It's so rare for me to get this excited over a new album, I really can't wait at all.

"Spread across four sides of 180g vinyl, with an etching on the 4th side." Which makes it sound like there will be music on the 4th (which is technically possible, but rarely done). Sure it'll be fine.
