  • Steven: On “Are You A Hypnotist”, there are six different drum things going on. There are three drumkits, a programmed drum machine, and two electronic drum parts that I played on a keyboard. There was no rhyme or reason for that. We just kept piling stuff on until we thought it sounded awesome. Thankfully, we’re not one of those bands that go in to the studio and knock out all the drum parts and move on. Sometimes we’ll do all the tracking for the other instruments first and then do the drums.

  • i love air and i love this song, but i don't think the resemblance is all that close - i do think it is thematically a little like virgin suicides in the intro, but that album is quite different from most of air's work. just my two cents :)
