Birthdays is the experimental song writing of Samuel Yager with live assistance by Kevin Kenkel. Their sound bubbles between steamy bedroom electro funk and deep burning psychedelic pop. Samuel has been playing as Birthdays since the summer of 2009 and recorded and released a limited edition EP on Little Fury Things out of Brooklyn, NY, entitled "Mating Falls" that same year. “Mating Falls,” recorded while Sam was hospitalized and recovering from gangrene in Upstate NY, was an experiment in pop sensibility. Shortly after his recovery, Birthdays began touring, writing, and recording in their downtown Boston studio home. In 2011 the band will release "Howolding Girls" on Denver-based Fire Talk Records, as well as an as yet untitled album later in the year. Birthdays are notably active members of the culture and art centered global community know as "the FMLY," and are rapidly expanding their notion of "popular sound" with each release. This 7” is limited to 300 copies.
