Recorded throughout January and February, deep into a recent Chicago winter, "a bottle house vernacular," was inspired by certain visionary and outsider artists.

Brendan Codey is a foghorn trigger and rapscallion lover of dusk, five o'clock, and shadow, as well as a multi-instrumentalist and vocalist. Currently, he abides in Philadelphia where he is at work on a new series of singles and/or an EP for release in 2011.


released November 16, 2010

All songs were written, recorded, and performed by Brendan Codey at home, twenty-seven floors high above the lake well north of downtown Chicago in the "good" park.

Mixed by Zaheer "Ziggy" Elly and Brendan Codey
Mastered by Mark Trewella at Full Circle Mastering

Press copies printed by Kyle Durrie at Power and Light Press.

A special thanks must go to Lisa Stone and Jim Zanzi for getting the wheels on the move, to T. Kochel and Squeezle for using headphones, and to Julianne Ahn for so many things that it's ridiculous.
