Erik: What role does song order play when producing an album?
Conrad: Huge role. Yeah, I feel very strongly about this. I’m very into song orders. Song orders on albums, set lists at a show, I grew up going to a lot of Grateful Dead shows, and when you’re a Dead-head, and when you’re such a big, big fan, you’re very concerned about set lists, what do they play? And that applies to all sorts of music. I was reading online; Radiohead’s coming to town, what was the set list? Bruce Springsteen. What did Bruce play? What new songs? What like old nuggets? I love that stuff. Every band has a person I think that gets involved with this the most. I’m that person in Taka Taka. Luckily for me, no one else is nearly as concerned with it as I am, so for the most part I get to do it all on my own. Of course, if anyone had a huge objection, we could talk. But for the most part, I do it. And just putting the order together on this record was a lot of fun but to me in the end things are very obvious, songs have character, each song has a certain character, some songs have this feeling in them where they’re clearly—this is the beginning. We’re setting out on a journey. Others are very clearly an epilogue. There’s something about it—and I don’t mean lyrics. There’s something about the music, they strike some sort of internal chord about—they feel like an ending, they feel like a prologue or they feel—songs fit in certain places. Some songs are a great second song because they’re that moment of excitement; they’re that breath of air after you first jump into the pool. They tie into these things. There really is an order. And I think putting together a song order for a record is no different than assembling the order for chapters in a book. It tells a story.
