The National and Erik Flannigan Capture the ‘Juicy Sonic Magic’ of Legendary Taper Mike Millard

The vintage analog recordings taken from a pair of the band’s 2018 sets at the Greek Theatre will be released November 29th. With plenty of time to have digested the band’s May-released I Am Easy to Find—and probably not nearly enough time to digest a socially unacceptable amount of sweet potatoes and turkey substitute The National are gearing up to share their latest recordings in the unconventional format of a live cassette this coming Black Friday. Featuring the band’s September 24th and 25th 2018 sets at LA’s Greek Theatre, Juicy Sonic Magic was recorded by producer/engineer Erik Flannigan, who used The Mike Millard Method, “[replicating] the vintage analog recording equipment the legendary taper used,” per a tweet from the band.

A David DuBois–directed doc short about “the most famous taper of all time” and his method, which prominently features The National and this particular performance, will arrive at an unspecified date shortly after JSM rouses us from our gravy-induced stupors.

Watch the trailer for the film below, and see the announcement tweet the band posted earlier this morning.

Juicy Sonic Sex Magik, er, Juicy Sonic Magic, is out November 29th for Record Store Day’s Black Friday event.
