Darlingside: More than the sum of their parts

You must "kill your darlings" is advice that has been passed along to writers for decades. It means that you must rid yourself of your favorite and most self-indulgent work for the goal of becoming a better writer. The band Darlingside (the act of killing your darlings) has gotten very good at this over the past decade. Some of the songs on the new album Extralife have taken years to find their way to this album, and with a songwriting process that's very democratic, it's clear these are the finest versions of the songs. We'll discuss Darlingside's unique approach to recording and performing, including how they blend their voices around one microphone. And the band deconstructs one of their signature 4-part harmonies.
