100 gecs are this week’s guests on The FADER Interview podcast. In advance of their new album 10,000 gecs’ release this Friday (March 17) via Dog Show Records, the duo of Dylan Brady and Laura Les broke down the making of the record for our Editorial Director Alex Robert Ross.

As it turns out, they took things a step further on this record, recording 10,000 gecs in the same room where Serj Tankian and System of a Down recorded their classic 2001 LP Toxicity.
“If it sounds faithful, it’s because it sounds good,” Les said. “It sounds like itself.”
