a quiet place to think about music

Are you really making a record that’s recorded in a garage, or are you making a record that reminds you of the feeling of records that are made in garages? (the way a film-maker might use a hand-held camera to give the impression of documentary urgency)

Does it make a difference if people hearing the record say, "That record sounds like trash," rather than, "They’ve deliberately chosen to make a record that sounds like trash."?
