RODERICK: I made that [first Long Winters] album with Chris Walla and Sean Nelson, and we all wanted it to be on Barsuk. A family was coalescing around the label and around a particular style of Seattle indie, and it felt very natural for me to want to be a part of it. Fortunately, the record we made turned out to be one of the albums that defined the sound of the label going forward. That record didn’t find the same national audience the subsequent Long Winters albums did, but we were very proud of it at the time. It was the culmination of everything we’d learned.
