Let's quickly address the fact that this place is a ghost-town. The reasons are way to complex to quickly unpack here, but if you've wondered what's happened to me, I'm investing most of my free time and energy into making games, and blogging about it here. After months of tumbleweeds, if there was something that could bring SMAC back from the grave, it would have to be great music. As luck would have it, that's exactly what we have right here.
Birthday Girl is the freshly unveiled, new musical project of Daniel Breiter (Fun Toy, HOOM), Dean Berger (Bateleur co-Founder) and Glenn Stein (Los Tacos). Late last year the guys handed me a collection of songs, that I swiftly found myself completely in love, and totally obsessed with. Many months, lots of hard work and much planning later, and we're all incredibly proud to be working together to bring these songs to The World in the form of Birthday's Girl's debut EP, Rituals.
Rituals will be out on Wednesday the 20th via our Bandcamp and Soundcloud. The 12th release by SMACM, we're unbelievably excited to be bringing this magic to people. The EP comes with (if we say so ourselves) pretty damn phenomenal art by Jeanne Fourie - the same creative force behind the mesmerizing animation above.
Outside of this stellar debut EP, you can also look forward to Birthday Girl's live show, which looks set to be some magic of the highest order. Drop by the band's facebook if you want to keep trakc of where and when you can see "Rituals" conjured up on stage!
