Kiwi Jr. wished to invoke a sense — not of location or temper, however of time; particularly, that point between sundown and dawn. For his or her third album, Chopper, the Toronto band wished to seize the sensation of nighttime. Some artists are tailored for being performed within the night, however Kiwi Jr.’s first two albums have been straight forward indie rock, so making Chopper can be a distinct sort of enterprise.
On this session, Jeremy Gaudet and Brian Murphy from the band be part of me to speak about how they approached making the document by increasing their sonic palette with the assistance of Wolf Parade‘s Dan Boeckner.
