Album Notes
This new collection of songs by The Merkin Dream is a lament over failed paintings, tragic love and a late night search for food. "Cottage" takes us from a hazy New York City subway to a crisp late summer evening on the beach by way of winding guitar and keyboard lines, layers of airy textures and beautifully honest vocals.

Belgian Thunder

This is a message to all who want something greater from the music industry:

I have heard this album over and over and I never seem to tire from listening to it. I have truly adored The Merkin Dream's previous albums but I must say that their newest project "Cottage' has taken a major step forward in the evolution of musical artistry. These chaps continually cultivate and refine their craft with every creative endeavor they embark. In a world of bubble gum and vapid music the Merkin Dream brings a gift to the masses seeking sustenance by synthesizing brilliant narratives with graceful melodies.

Regardless of your favored musical genre, "Cottage" will fit into your life and find permanent residency in your CD player. There is so much junk food out in this world and since the nature of music is based on taste, you might as well splurge on meal that nurtures you. This album does such. If you feel you've forgotten the sensation of being moved and thrilled by an album then I truly suggest you pick up "Cottage" by The Merkin Dream.

Cheers to The Merkin Dream- A devoted fan

Tamara Turner, CD Baby

These unassuming, atmospheric pop songs, blinking with modesty and introverted curiosity, speak to the inner life, speak to the world you look out from, the heart of the soul looking out from the eyes. In this world going on in your head and your heart, the parts of you that no other has seen, there are the sanctuaries, the pockets of quiet wondering, of limitless questioning- these charming indie pop tracks reach humanely into this vivid, multi-dimensional macrocosm, soundlessley churning and growing, feeding the energy of your outer life. You might experience this album more in terms of the resurfacing of yearnings, the resuscitation of long-forgotten devotions, the feeling of life slowly being breathed into the lifeless.
