NEEDLE EXCHANGE 114: An Exclusive Mix By … ADULT.



Words and Mix by ADULT.

For the last two years we were doing construction work. This was partially because we were completely burnt out on music, and partially because we were in debt from the ADULT. films we made in 2010. This was an intense time for us. There were certain songs we would play obsessively during this period, especially “Compulsion,” “All My Colours” and “We Have Come to Bless the House.”

We let our “burn out” run its course, and then earlier this year, we went back into the studio. Music writing has been a very cathartic process for us. We have experienced many moods over these last few years, and this mix represents them. It also foreshadows the new material we are working on for a new record in early spring on Ghostly International…
