Dave Hause shared “Doublewhiskeycokenoice,” the latest track to be lifted from the Friday, October 23 release of his two brand new EPs, 'Patty' and 'Paddy'. Featuring songwriter Lilly Hiatt, “Doublewhiskeycokenoice” is a punk staple written by Dillinger Four and featured on its 1998 'Midwestern Songs Of The Americas' album but reworked into a delicate piano-laden offering with Hiatt offering a beautiful and haunting vocal.

Says Dave about the song: "Paddy Costello’s songs always felt like working class anthems, but not in a cheesy, celebratory way, more of a lament of what it actually feels like to work your ass off day in, day out, and still not quite have enough,” Hause says. “When I recorded this version of ‘Doublewhiskeycokenoice’, I wanted to get that feeling of someone plunking around on a piano in a bar late at night when most people have gone home. I don’t hang around bars anymore, and neither does my friend Lilly Hiatt, but we’ve both spent our fair share of time in them. So here it is … two sober people singing about drinking a few of your problems away."
