Music Millennium

Finally - a new transmission from the evil geniuses responsible for unleashing Naomi Punk and Weed on a wider audience! Less abrasive than either of the aforementioned, Mega Bog occupies just as singular a space in the "weird pop" world inhabited by their label mates. Couple Skate haven't steered US wrong yet, and this one promises to be another break-out success story. Get on board on the ground floor! a thick green mist, a lush chill vibe; after 5 years and countless self-released tapes and CDs, Megabog - the brainchild of songwriter Erin Birgy - have completed their best work to date; a swirling pop cloud called Gone Banana. Influenced equally by the emotional psychedelia of Kevin Ayers and the pop whimsy of Steely Dan, Gone Banana is a joyous declaration of artistic independence and purpose. Alternately a tender songwriting project, a blazin-hot jazz-rock combo, or an open forum for goofy one-offs and fragile experimentation, Mega Bog is ultimately whatever Birgy wants it to be on a given day. Sounding equal parts Ariel Pink and Prefab Sprout, the assembled cast rip through 9 hazy burners with a tightness hidden behind layers of drizzle and reverb. Representing a unique moment in Birgy's songwriting maturation, Gone Banana is an immersive listening experience and a peek into the life of a truly strange soul.
