Alas I Cannot Swim

ty for taking the time to answer q's

I'm a gleaming fan of Laura Marling's 'Alas I Cannot Swim'
the sounds are incredibly deep and entrancing!

I'm very curious about the tracking process of this record...
did Laura track gtr & vox simultaneously?
what's the scoop on the drum sound?
were any of the other instruments recorded live with Laura?

any extra insight/experiences you can remember from this album would be cherished!

When I originally worked with Laura at Eden Studios she recorded vocal and acoustic at the same time. Not all tracks were recorded this way but the majority. I even built a mini baffle to place between her guitar and vocal. Instruments were then overdubbed to these recordings. Most of the band were young (16 - 21). She was easy to work with and very fast - would get a Master in 3 or 4 takes. Wonderful lyrics - a star!
