Hrishikesh Hirway started making Heaven Is Attached by a Slender Thread during sleepless nights in Los Angeles. Tony Hoffer, who has produced albums for Beck, Phoenix, Belle and Sebastian, and Air ended up hearing demos of some of the early songs and reached out to get involved with the recording. Hoffer took an the role of an advisor, and Hirway would send him his hand-crafted organic electronic songs. Hoffer eventually mixed the album. For Hirway, the new LP is about living on the fumes of dreams and hopes, which also happen to be what the plastic city of Los Angeles is built on, and what it is constantly confirming - and betraying.
