    This summer?! That's earlier than I expected, and what he's saying about recording to TAPE and free jamming and stuff make me SO excited!

    "Jamming".

    I mean, I remember Mike insisted in some past interviews LP was not a jam bad at all, and that they were always working with computers (which I assume, everybody has figured out ahah).

    So yes, I'm happy to hear they're trying some new methods in the studio :)

    I knew they weren't recording in NRG studio. Now I'm definitely excited, but let's not celebrate yet.

    I'm gonna repeat what I said before. Everything he just said is going to lead to a much more organic album. Maybe more so than MTM. And that gets me fucking excited.

    All those twitter pics of guitars + that jam comment could mean the guitar parts in this future record could be more elaborated than in their previous records. Not necessarily more present, but more elaborated.

    And that would be great. Those octaves LP have been playing since years sometimes gets on my nerves :p

    Assumptions. Single in or before June would be fantastic but Mike has said nothing of the sort. Just that they want us to hear the new music by summer.

    "inspired", "jamming", "experimenting"

    Just these three words. Fuck. Yeah.

    I really hope this album to be a major success, just like the latest QOTSA one. The guys and their work totally deserve a huge appreciation.
