9. White Hinterland – “I Miss You”

White Hinderland On “I Miss You”
“I didn’t grow up listening to Björk, but have always liked whenever something of hers would come on a friend’s stereo. The first time hearing this song, I was simultaneously attempting to learn it. I think that leaves little in the way of previous architecture to battle with while making the song “your own.” Since Matt’s drums were stolen, he ended up using pots & pans for percussion. The rest involved a RCA mic from ’52, a borrowed casio SK-1, a distortion pedal, and a suitcase rhodes. Just for a laugh, we also mixed a version where the entire song runs backwards, and I almost sound like I’m singing in Icelandic. We plan to listen to soon while in an altered state.”
