Mega Bog, the experimental pop project of New York's Erin Birgy, will release new album Happy Together on February 3 via Nicey Music. NPR's Songs We Love premiered the record's first single "Fwee" today and said the song "echoes the liberationist vibe of the West Coast's hippie heyday... her surprisingly fleet-footed seven-piece evokes a classic-rock band blissing out by a glimmering shoreline. Idly hypnotic guitar and deep vocal harmonies toy with the intensity, until 'Fwee' makes literal Birgy's observation that 'Fweedom is certainly useful / Pouring love in a musical being.'"


Mega Bog is the moniker of song-dribbler Erin Birgy, a Pacific Northwest rodeo child with an unmistakable laugh who was allegedly cursed upon conception. Over the past 8 years the band has stretched and wandered in a crescendo towards musical freedom. Now based in New York City, Birgy has adopted a band of wiggly jazz cartoons lifted from bands like Big Thief, iji, Big Eater, Causings, Hand Habits, Heatwarmer and others. 

Melodies always lush, erotic and free. Chords always dissonant, abstract and evolutionary. On their 2013 album Gone Banana, Bog settled into their homemade cloud of pop and jazz. Spreading the discs around the world over countless tours of dim zones. On their new bug, Happy Together, Mega Bog leapfrogs further into the storm. Dizzying fusion of lounge, pop and bouncing rocks under poetic tantrums of love gone all the way wrong. Listen closer.

 
MEGA BOG, HAPPY TOGETHER
