“There’s a train yard, there’s a landfill, there’s manufacturing. There’s things still going on. There’s Trinity Hospital and there’s a police station. All these people still had to go to work, so you’re still hearing stuff,” Long recalled. “But, at the same time, for simplicity’s sake, I’m working from home, but not working as much. It was this weird sort of thing where the sounds around the neighborhood were still the same, but I had more time to go out and record. You just had this kind of split, this tension.”
