It has been four years since Phelans second full-length record Parlor came out (released on Jagjaguwar, as was his debut Songs of Patrick Phelan. And during this sabbatical from the frontlines of musical performance, Phelan has devoted his time to the pursuits of cooking, spending time in Italy, recently doing just that, and studying local and global human rights. If one's life energies are zero sum, these recent personal endeavors of Phelan have come at the cost of promoting and performing his recordings. The good news for his fans: the release of Cost coincides with the shift of Phelan's focus back to both recorded and live music, confirmed by his recent formation of a new live band.
