A Necessary Evil


Hope Sandoval (Mazzy Star) and Colm Ó Cíosóig (My Bloody Valentine) spoke to Consequence of Sound about their third album together as Hope Sandoval & The Warm Inventions, detailing how they found one of the album’s key collaborators walking through the Berkeley BART station and noting that music is a thing they just can’t quit.

“It’s a necessary evil; we just have to do it,” said Sandoval. Cíosóig elaborated, adding, “We just have no choice at all. Obviously, we’re passed the beginning phases now, but it all still feels kind of fresh because there’s still more to be done. It’s a necessary evil: Once you do one, you have to do more.” Listen to the track “Isn’t It True” off the new album Until the Hunter after the jump.
