Following the release of their first album, Wind Up Wooden Heart in 2010, Social Studies spent the better part of a year on the road, transfixing audiences at the CMJ Music Festival, SXSW, and Noise Pop, and bringing their unique energy and spirit to stages shared with tUnE-yArDs, Wye Oak, Lotus Plaza, Thee Oh Sees, Dodos, Dungen, and Au Revoir Simone just to name a few.
In early 2012, Social Studies returned to the studio with the goal of stripping things down to the basics, straightening out some of the more jagged lines of their previous work, and focusing more on texture and mood. They enlisted the able ears and hands of engineer and co-producer Eli Crews (tUnE-yArDs, Deerhoof, Thao & Mirah) who helped hone this new barebones attack as well as reflect the excitement of their live show. On Developer, all the pieces have come together perfectly.
