Life, and Another
CD/digital/book: July 23, 2021
LP: Aug. 27, 2021
The magical Mega Bog returns with another fantastical off-world transmission, the most sophisticated, exploratory, and accessible statement yet from surrealist songwriter and avant-pop prospector Erin Birgy. Featuring James Krivchenia (Big Thief), who co-produced, and Zach Burba (iji) among its cast of vibrant players, Life, and Another bristles with painterly technicolor surface textures while plumbing fathomless depths of feeling.
+ Deluxe LP edition features 140g virgin vinyl; heavy-duty matte board jacket; insert with lyrics and credits; and high-res Bandcamp download code.
CD edition features gatefold jacket with LP replica art and insert with lyrics and credits.
+ A limited-edition Life, and Another photo and song book (perfect bound, foil-stamped cover, 64 full-color pages, 300 copies only) featuring images, songwriting and studio notes, collages and texts by Erin Birgy, and drawings by Zach Burba, designed by Joel Gregory, is available, while supplies last, exclusively via Paradise of Bachelors.
