Episode 30: Cypress by Let’s Active

Having made a name for himself as an engineer and producer during the burgeoning college rock scene of the early 80s, Mitch Easter would form the band Let’s Active with bassist Faye Hunter and drummer Sara Romweber as a vehicle for his own songwriting. In Episode 30, Easter tells the story of the band’s 1984 debut full length Cypress. Recounting the events surrounding the album’s creation, the native North Carolinian touches on the band’s experience working in the studio he built inside his parents’ garage and how a bandmate’s really great hair would lead to their signing with I.R.S Records.
