Do you feel like you have more flexibility with Tape Club because it's not a conventional release?

Dickey: Yeah, in a way. The Tape Club tour is different because normally when a new band does a tour, you have to listen to them play all their new songs, and you kind of like the other album better. But Tape Club is kind of like our whole career, so it's a little bit of everything. That's kind of nice. Our whole set is just spread out.

Knauer: I think it's really interesting. I didn't feel nearly the amount of pressure that went into Let it Sway, and then Tape Club I feel like it's doing just as well, or getting all the same press. It's weird...what part of the process we need to realize is more important in getting a record ready. It was nice. It felt a lot more laid back.

Dickey: It's like, for Tape Club, now we're getting to let it sway, on this release.

The house on the cover of Tape Club: I'm sure it's got some significance.

Dickey: It's kind of a trick, actually.

Knauer: A little known fact is a different house than we recorded Broom in. That's actually the house the photographer lived in, which is right around the corner. And is similar architecture.

Dickey: I kind of figured it would look super homemade and like that's where we recorded all our songs. It was definitely a trick. But really what happened...his yard is a jungle. He had a satellite fall on his roof three years ago and it's just hanging there. And we were like, "Well, let's do some pictures next to the broken satellite and it will mean something."
