Salon.com Interview with JP

"[For "1,000 Palms"], we wrote 10 songs in two weeks, and there was that excitement of moving really fast. We had a New Year’s show in Portland, and we’d just heard the news that we were dropped from Warner Brothers. While kind of relieving, it was also like, “We don’t have a record label for the first time in five years. What are we going to do?” There was a lot of uncertainty around that time, but it was also like a new beginning for us. We rented a practice space in Portland and basically stayed in town for three weeks after our show, playing shows in the Northwest to pay for the space. From nine in the morning until nine at night, we locked ourselves in there and wrote and wrote. When we recorded these songs, there was this excitement of recording something for the first time instead of demoing and demoing and going into the studio."
