Album info

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 all sounds by Jesse, except: Mike Barthel: accordion on "Airplanes" violin on "Mercury Spring" Jeff Perlman: clarinet and saxophone on "Airplanes" and "Movie Cars" and samples throughout Biz: electric guitar on "Ringo Blues" Tom Sperduto: trumpet samples throughout field recordings from: Oberlin, Ohio; Boulder, Colorado; New York, New York; Ocean Beach, New York mixed at KILLTODDNOW by Christopher Hill
