The first incarnation of Snowblink in 2005 included MGMT as boy back-up singers and percussionists. Since then, Daniela Gesundheit has trained over a dozen fellas across the US and Canada to join her when circumstances permit. Gesundheit's most recent album, Long Live, was brought to life by the engineering of Jay Pellicci (Deerhoof) and the mixing of Thom Monahan (Brightblack Morning Light, Vetiver, Au Revoir Simone) in various locations throughout California, Toronto, and New York. Much of the work for the record was completed in a cabin in Mammoth Lakes, located in the Eastern Sierras of California. The various unusual vocal sounds on the record were likely influenced by the animal sounds surrounding the band as they recorded.
