Drowned in Sound talks to Jeffrey Lewis about working with City and Eastern Songs producer Kramer and the sweet, sweet joys of lo-fi. The Kramer stuff is hysterical:
I was really happy to get Kramer on board because of all the Galaxie 500 records and Daniel Johnston stuff that he did, and a bunch of other records that he’s made that I really loved. But, it was just so tense. he’s very, uh… like, he would just fly into these fits of, “Okay, you wanna do it your way? Well, this record’s gonna sound like garbage, but fine! I mean, I’ve made thousands of records, but no, you wanna do it your way – fine!”
