A Non-Comprehensive Jim O’Rourke Comprehensive

If you have heard the name Jim O’Rourke, it is likely because of his work behind the boards for musicians including Joanna Newsom, Smog, Sonic Youth, Stereolab, Tony Conrad, and Wilco. Like Steve Albini, O’Rourke isn’t picky about who he chooses to work with (“Unless I have a moral problem with the group, I’ll always work for people,” he said in an interview with Hit It Or Quit It), which has allowed him to work with different musicians and touch on different genres—often resulting in those artists’ best albums.
