DD: About halfway into the record I played some rough tracks for my boyfriend [M.C. Schmidt, also of Matmos] and he said that it was all too male and gruff and macho, and that it hadn't hit the "diva house" place that it needed to hit. At that point I had known Jenn for a while, but I still had to get up the courage to ask her if she would be willing to take part in this. I didn't doubt her mettle or her courage or her talent, but it just is hard to sing lyrics as ridiculous as [Sarcofago's] "Ready to Fuck" without laughing, so it wasn't exactly an easy assignment. What she did to that song was to take it way, way beyond my skeletal arrangement and into these disco-paradise clouds of harmony. She makes the record far more human, and funny, and warm. I'd have to say she makes it sexier too. Can I say that about my friend or is that creepy? Fuck it, she makes it sexier.
