The recording was reportedly done in Radiohead's Oxfordshire studio. Besides Lisa Selway's collaborators were - Wilco drummer Glenn Kotche and multi-instrumentalist Pat Sansone, and former Soul Coughing bassist Sebastian Steinber (who also appears on Lisa's latest solo offering).
All of these musicians including Germano collaborated on Neil Finn's recent Seven Worlds Collide project, including a charity album, The Sun Came Out.
Magic Neighbor is the eighth album from singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Germano. The album was recorded by Jamie Camdiloro at his home in Los Angeles, produced by Germano. Magic Neighbor is her third release on Young God Records.
Germano didn't approach the recording with the intent of "making a record;" she just needed to address these songs and decide whether they'd be meaningful to anyone besides her. Lacking the means of recording at home she began working with Camdiloro where they'd left off with in the maybe world tracking voice and piano. Besides new songs, Lisa revisited older compositions that'd never been rendered properly, including some that were among the first she'd ever written. She re-worked some lyrics, added more instrumentation, and then brought in Sebastian Steinberg (Soul Coughing) on acoustic bass and Greg Leisz on pedal steel. None of the arrangements were worked out beforehand; all the playing was improvised in the studio
