Mega Bog announces new album Dolphine, shares lead single “Diary of a Rose”
Erin Birgy and her band Mega Bog share the lead single from their absurdly good forthcoming 5th full-length Dolphine, out June 28 on Paradise of Bachelors. “Diary of a Rose” is a stunning introduction to the new record, a jazzy/breezy gem with vaguely sinister undertones, teeming with Birgy’s unforgettably peculiar and vivid lyrical phrasing and the kind of deceptively labyrinthine melodies and slithering guitar lines that made the band’s last LP Happy Together such a compelling, unsung masterpiece and one of the best records of the last half-decade or so. In their premiere of the track today, NPR’s Adelaide Sandstrom used the word “prismatic”, and that kind of nails it. Listen below + pre-order Dolphine here.
