Recording began this past spring at Eno’s Public Hi-Fi Studios in Austin, TX, Consequence of Sound reports, and so far the group has recorded at least ten songs: “The Rent I Pay,” “Naff Bag,” “Millionaires,” “Let Me Be Mine,” “Modern Girls,” “I Ain’t the One,” “Fresh From Your Pages,” “Give Me It,” “They Want My Soul”, and an untitled song.
