I was certainly trying to be aggressive and contrasting in the sounds I created with Modest Mouse but present it in a way that was appealing, I wasn't cleaning it up but trying to find the balance that was pleasing for all... You are always navigating the comfort zones... In the first instance I would try to follow the artist's idea with sounds that reflected their desire but I felt I could pair and manage with other elements and get something that still felt like a real record to me... Secondly it's a matter of finding the right elements to push that add the dimension without effecting the things the artist is most sensitive about, and really you don't ever want to have everything dirty or clean because you never arrive at a balance of colors that has depth... I hope something helps in this reply...
