    It's a new and fantastic chapter in an ongoing body of uncontainable work, one where Birgy has never hesitated to dive into her own psyche and wrestle what she finds there back up to the surface for all to see.

    For longstanding Mega Bog fans, Life, and Another immediately stands out as one of Birgy’s finest records from start to finish. There’s a maturation to the stylistic choices and general trajectory of the instrumentation.

    Wonderfully eclectic and strangely uplifting. [Aug 2021, p.31]

    At 44 minutes, Life, and Another is lengthy compared to many new albums, but its 16 diverse tracks all earn their inclusion, each piece of the tapestry finely crafted and lovingly stitched into place. Few albums released so far this year have felt quite so magical and transportive, carried along by a mischievous dream-like narrative.

    It is a record that is whimsical and sensual; weird and romantic.

    Life, and Another expands her palette tenfold with different hues and tones that would typically go unnoticed on an experimental record. The result is her most engaging work yet.

    It takes repeated listens before hooks and memorable melodies begin to reveal themselves. Once they do, Life, and Another becomes a far more gratifying listen: swamped, at times, with unconvincing mystery, but beautiful, too.
