s.o.t.r-You recently released a trippy and nostalgic laced music video for the tune Jungle. How did the idea of using prosthetics emerge?
s.o.t.r-Your new record Still Living is set to be released in late August. Was the original plan to make it a double LP or did it just materialize into that during the recording?
s.o.t.r- How was working with producer Robby Moncrieff? How exactly did that come about? Was his presence something you envisioned from the start of the album or did he come in during a midway point?
s.o.t.r-Gangilans are known best as an acid pop or psychedelic band. Does the process of labeling in the music world ever leave you feeling pigeonholed or do you see it as a quick way to introduce people to what sound you might be producing?
s.o.t.r-How much does the feel of Sacramento/Southern CA influence your sound?
s.o.t.r-You all are undergoing a big tour this summer in promotion of Still Living, what would say has been the most memorable tour event so far?
s.o.t.r-You guys have steadily been getting more and more press from sites like Stereogum and Pitchfork. How has the transition to being one of the better-known bands on the indie circuit been?
s.o.t.r-What are your plans for the rest of 2011?
Ganglinas-No plans, just expanding. Looking forward to playing live again though the studio is where all the fun is.
