Mega Bog – “Wet Moss” Video (Stereogum Premiere)

Seattle’s Mega Bog have been self-releasing material since long before they were picked up by NYC/Seattle label Couple Skate Records, who put out the band’s debut full-length Gone Banana back in September. Erin Birgy fronts Mega Bog, and she recruited a group of Seattle-based experimental pop musicians to make the new album. “Wet Moss” initiates as an ambient experiment before ascending into overcast pop that recalls Broadcast, and its accompanying video is a carefully coordinated grouping of footage shot by Birgy. Watch below.
