For Jonathan Coulton, success as a independent musician has come with recording music himself, releasing individual songs online one-at-a-time, and even selling his catalog on a USB drive. So in a way, his new album Artificial Heart is a terrifying turn to the traditional, and a creative risk. It was produced with They Might Be Giants' John Flansburgh in a studio with a full band, the old-fashioned way. Jonathan and John talk to us about that process.

The fruit of their labors, Artificial Heart, is out now. To hear more from Jonathan and John, you can listen Coulton and Flansburgh's past appearances on The Sound of Young America. You can also visit them at JonathanCoulton.com and TheyMightBeGiants.com.
