In the spring of 2013, the members of Garbage — Shirley Manson, Steve Marker, Duke Erikson and Butch Vig — gathered in Los Angeles to start work on their sixth studio album. Except the recording didn’t begin in a studio, per se. It began where so many bands first do: in a basement.
The basement was Vig’s, perhaps one of the least elaborate home studios a multi-platinum producer has ever had. A home studio consisting of four walls of drywall, giving this album a bit of a “trashy vibe.”
It was a fitting launching pad for an album that, over the course of the next two and a half years, would see the band finding a way forward by looking backward, tapping into the spark of their youths to try an uninhibited back-to-basics approach. But Garbage — long known for their meticulously crafted blend of dark, industrial noise, sci-fi pop melodies, whirlwind guitar, and tricked-out rhythms — was going back-to-basics for the first time. It’s a return to the freedom they had when working on their very first songs at Smart Studios in Madison, Wisconsin, more than twenty years ago, before they’d ever signed a label deal. “It’s so liberating,” says Manson.
The band is touring around their brand new record Strange Little Birds, which just dropped earlier this summer. Check out the first single from the album here:
Garbage – Empty
An unexpected success, Garbage’s debut album earned multi-platinum certifications around the world, three Grammy award nominations, went on to sell over 4 million copies worldwide…and of course spawned this song –
Only Happy When It Rains
