The Bloodthirsty Lovers
Having shared the stage with Modest Mouse, The Flaming Lips, and Guided by Voices; The Bloodthirsty Lovers is the brainchild of Memphis guitarist/vocalist Dave Shouse (formerly of The Grifters & Those Bastard Souls). What began as a solo project in 2001 eventually became a collaboration between Shouse and Steve Selvidge (son of legendary Sid Selvidge) for the creation of their second full-length album The Delicate Seam. Selvidge collaborated on 4 of the 8 songs on the album and all tracks were recorded at the homes of both Shouse and Selvidge. The album was created using "sequential recording", a process that Shouse explains as: filling up his 8 track, dumping it into Pro-Tools, mixing to stereo tracks on his machine, and then repeating the process until the songs are complete. Memphis musician and engineer, Kevin Houston mixed analog to half-inch tape.
