Karen O and Danger Mouse want you to listen like they do on ‘Lux Prima’

The two worked mostly at L.A.’s Sound Factory studio, which Danger Mouse occupied for years before moving recently to New York. Much of the time, they holed up by themselves in the studio’s small control room, building the music layer by layer; later, they invited in additional musicians including Yeah Yeah Yeahs guitarist Nick Zinner and the producer Inflo, with whom Danger Mouse had previously collaborated on Michael Kiwanuka’s song “Cold Little Heart,” which became the haunting theme to HBO’s “Big Little Lies.”
