    Just stumbled upon this. Really a fantastic listen. For fans of Sparklehorse, Pisces-era Pumpkins, Pavement/Malkmus. Really an enthralling listen that will reveal itself more and more after a few listens. It's a fairly long album. Schedule some time with this one.

    While it initially comes off as ragged, lo-fi, and maybe even a bit haphazard, Weird Little Birthday is more enduring than its casualness and wry intimacy might initially suggest.

    Weird Little Birthday is one of those albums that sounds like nothing much the first couple times you hear it, before you begin to lock onto the war between musical ease and lyrical dislocation.

    Weird Little Birthday is a superb debut, beautifully recorded, with everything in its right place.
