From Three Ring Records:

Parts of the Amores Vigilantes album…was secretly recorded in the basement of the San Francisco Chronicle, where former reporter Delfin Vigil used to smuggle instruments and musicians past security guards.

“We really wanted this album to feel like a melodic San Francisco post card,” says Delfin who spent more than ten years at the paper reporting on film, music, as well as tragic shootings and stabbings around the city. He wrote and recorded several parts of the songs in an abandoned room in the Chronicle’s basement, near where old printing presses still stand. “I loved the idea that we recorded in a kind of clandestine atmosphere, yet still right smack in the middle of downtown San Francisco – and literally underground.”
