On A Clear Night, You Can Smell For Miles by Funny Cry Happy

Album Description

CURATOR:
GENRE:
Length:00:03:19

source: Stopwatch Recordings

The second full-length from Brooklyn's Funny Cry Happy. Infectiously surreal folk strums set atop an ever-shifting psychedelic sound field of bells, banjos, birds, radio static, recordings made in a tunnel under a highway in Boulder, reconstructed trumpets, accordion, uke, dubbed snares, organ drones, the ever-present toy piano, and whatever else was lying around. The kitchen sink was left off this time (though was included on FCH's self-titled 2002 debut).

Recorded at Wunderkammern Studios
Brooklyn, NY, September 2002 - October 2004

all songs by Jesse, except:
"Mercury Spring" lyrics by Maxwell Anderson
