The day she left on a 3 month trip to Egypt, Andras Pokorny dismantled his grandma’s East Village apartment and moved in all his recording equipment.

He set the drums on plywood board laid across a box spring. For some of the dirtier guitar sounds, he built his own pedals — a ring modulator and a fuzz box. On a close listen, you can hear an ambulance siren pierce the opening vocals of “Sun, Fill Me Up”.

Andras recorded, mixed, mastered, and played every instrument on High July except one. The violinist is Lehel Ujvari, who lends urgent tones to “Country Air” and hot blues to “Lucky Day” and “Memorial Day Weekend.”

High July is out now digitally and on limited cassette.

Cover art by Emily Lopez.

N E W  R E L E A S E — July 15, 2014
On Tuesday, July 15, Good Behavior will release High July, the debut album from Bushwick artist Andras Pokorny.
High July is surprising and comforting in its eccentricities: Dank, humid vocals over dirt-fuzz guitar… Folk-picking and pitch perfect whistles (Yes, whistles) — all of which you can hear in the first single, “Sun, Fill Me Up”.

N E W  R E L E A S E   —  April 1, 2014
On Tuesday April 1, Good Behavior will release the skin, the sea, the sound — the newest album from Philadelphia composer and collaborator Joshua Stamper.
Stamper’s music has always been about the contracting and expanding nature of space, be it the distance between two grains of sand or the dilating and diminishing expanse between one person and another. This concern is no less central in the skin, the sea, the sound, but its focus on space is decidedly outer.
Listen below to “O Glowing Hunter, O Lover of Beasts”, the first track on the album, recorded at Malabar Studios in Oslo, Norway and Familyre Studio in Clarksboro, New Jersey — by Martin Bowitz, Emil Nikolaisen (Serena Maneesh), and Daniel C. Smith (Danielson).
Joshua Stamper plays Johnny Brenda’s on Saturday April 5.
