HOW DID TWIN SHADOW GET THAT SOUND?
Twin Shadow AKA George Lewis Jr. deftly plays the Moog Guitar, utilizing the patented sustaining power to float cascading melodic lines across the soundscape. Lewis’ guitar and vocals are running through the Analog Delay Moogerfooger.
Keyboardist Wynne Bennett uses the Little Phatty to lay down a fat rumbling bass line throughout the song with her left hand. With her right hand she plays a Minimoog Voyager XL, which is MIDI controlling Moog’s new synthesizer iPad app, Animoog enabling her to play polyphonically.
Bass player Russell Manning plays the Moog Guitar, using the control pedal to sweep the cutoff of the guitar’s internal ladder filter, to create a wah-like effect that adds a funky dub feel interwoven with the percussion.
Michael Hutcherson plays a Minimoog Old School Voyager, layering haunting soundscapes and filter sweeps throughout the song.
Drummer Andy Bauer is playing three Minimoog Voyager Rack Mounts as percussion instruments, triggering each one separately using the Trap-Kat XL drum pads. Each drum sound is a Minimoog Voyager preset that was specifically sculpted to envelop the track.
