Mega Bog // Small Talk // Buddy Chapman Jr.

Mega Bog is the fluid musical moniker of songwriter Erin Elizabeth Birgy, who’s background and artist identity are as surreal as her songs. She has spent the last ten years channelin, capturing, and releasing her unique bouquet of fragrant, sci-fi pop experiments with a handful of bicoastal collaborators. Her band is transient, her time is is transient, her music certainly is not..
The new album, Dolphine, is partially inspired by the otherworldly writings of the late Ursula K. Le Guin, who once said of the label “science fiction”: “My tentacles are coming out of the pigeonhole in all directions.” Dolphine similarly flits from groovy jazz to psych-pop to sylvan folk with freaky glee. Birgy’s idiosyncrasies bear resemblance to the off-kilter lyricism of Cate Le Bon or Aldous Harding, the elastic voice of Jessica Pratt, or the cosmic guitar reverence of Big Thief, whose drummer James Krivchenia, a frequent Mega Bog collaborator, engineered the album. But Dolphine pushes further into uncharted realms, where any rules about conventional melodies and lyrical coherence deteriorate.
