Lyric and guitar driven album rock with modern influences and vintage sounds. Influenced by Queens Of The Stone Age and The Clash. The Maladies played the Give Me Something songs live on tour in the American Pacific Northwest before recording them at Morningstar Studios, The Ranch Studio, and River Trail Studios in Idaho during 2007 and 2008, working out the kinks and learning what felt good to play. The band was listening to Queens Of The Stone Age, Kings Of Leon, White Stripes, Outkast, Black Keys, Arctic Monkeys and seeking out anything else that felt real and musical. The lyrics aim to express illness, in the sense of exorcising it. The music emerged from the lyrics and was then expanded by the band and the chemistry that developed while recording their self-titled debut, The Maladies.
Unlike the first album which was mixed by the band in Pro Tools, Give Me Something was mixed using vintage analog gear at Radiostar Studios in Weed, California. The hope was to retain more of the authenticity and depth of the music as it sounded when played live.
