About this video
Welcome to Producers Corner, our new video series in which we grill our favorite producers about their mysterious craft while following them around their naturalhabitat: the studio, of course. This week we visit Pacific Northwest titan Phil Ek, shepherd of innumerable indie-rock classics from Built to Spill, Modest Mouse, The Shins and more. Watch as he shows us around his inner sanctum, laments the plight of new up-and-coming producers, and tries to explain how much work this job really entails. It's all brought to you by ASUS and Intel. Enjoy.
