Mega Bog's "Happy Together" Out This Week; Stream In Full Now

MEGA BOG - HAPPY TOGETHER

OUT THIS WEEK ON NICEY MUSIC


Mega Bog, the experimental pop project of Brooklyn's Erin Birgy, will release the weird and wonderful new album Happy Together this week on Nicey Music; today she's made the full record available for streaming:


CLRVYNT premiered the stream this morning, saying, "Happy Together provides a cohesive, carefully constructed listen, joining the gauzy, guitar-driven palette of its predecessor (2014's Gone Banana) to a more stylistically ambiguous template that draws upon jazz and dream-pop."

Happy Together is available for pre-order now.

Praise for Happy Together:

"A soothsaying Laura Marling or a spacey Nico... evokes a classic-rock band blissing out by a glimmering shoreline." - NPR
"Imagine an adventure game quest with Yoko Ono as your guide, or Laurie Anderson doing her best David Attenborough impression: a deep, joyful abstraction that draws to a pure, human conclusion." - Pitchfork
"Spacious, warm, and eerie, with brass, guitar, and vocal melodies weaving in the ether." - Stereogum
"An elastic, unpredictable vocal that truly delights." - Noisey

Mega Bog will tour the UK for the first half of February and will then return for the below US tour dates:
