Birgy’s vocals ooze over the synth as the track continues, creating free form poetry with a jazz-literate backing.

Pitchfork album review “Happy Together”

Happy Together, bubbles and abstractly teems without ever feeling excessive. Birgy flits through a sound that is both familiar and far-out.

Tiny Mix Tapes album review “Happy Together”

With a cool mastery of the contralto voice once coarsely navigated by Nico and the speak-sing delivery of Laurie Anderson

Gold Flake Paint on “Fwee”

NPR Music Songs We Love: Mega Bog – “Fwee”

“Fwee” makes literal Birgy’s observation that

‘Fweedom is certainly useful / Pouring love in a musical being.’

The song cracks open, allowing backmasked slivers of guitar and wriggling solos to flood out – a new tributary finding its path.


Pitchfork reviews “192014”

“192014” swarms with that cosmic curiosity. Its disembodied saxophones are straight out of the Black Lodge by way of Bowie’s Blackstar, weaving a jaunty path through an inviting yet disquieting haze.
