From Back Up The Truck Youtube Page:

Former Clues and the Unicorns frontman Alden Penner released his first solo effort in over five years. The e.p. titled 'Odes to the house' contains four new songs, accompanied by four videos showing the recording process of the e.p. 'Odes to the House' is available as download or as limited handmade package at record label Beep! Beep! Back up the Truck (

Alden Penner is a Canadian musician, founder and former member of indie pop bands Clues and the Unicorns, known for their successful album 'Who Will Cut Our Hair When We're Gone?'

Penner on his new release: "These are liberation songs I hope, of the spiritual kind, seeking to uplift hearts to new heights of understanding and appreciation of the literature and station of the Universal House of Justice."

The collection of songs are dedicated to the people of the world, particularly in North Africa and the Middle East, who have been expressing their desire for justice and peace in recent months, in the hopes this energy and fervour can be channeled into true and enduring emancipation from the weight of grievous oppression.

Prior to his first European tour as member of the new band 'The Hidden Words' Penner went on a four month journey leading him from Bamako, Mali to Haifa, Israel. Added to this was time spent reflecting and putting together the four songs forming 'Odes to the House' in Paris, Vendôme, Thoré la Rochette and Utrecht. In Utrecht Penner teamed up with Dutch record label Beep! Beep! Back up the Truck who documented his songs and released them as unique handmade packages.

The packages of 'Odes to the house' contain a silk-screened poster, an inlay with notes by Penner, a dropcard giving access to the songs and videos and an optional CD.
