theMichaelFrank Some of the tracks sound like 90s college-radio pop, or even jingles [in the best way], while others have a 'current' indie rock vibe to em. It's a solid mix over 17 tracks. Favorite track: Anything I Do Is All Right.

Flint Sparklehorse and Wilco had an offspring sometime in the late 90s and somehow it's ended up as the debut album of a 2010's London band. Favorite track: Montreal Rock Band Somewhere.

Brendan Hobbs Awesome, just awesome.

Where to start? That guitar hook in Weird Little Birthday Girl will infect your brain for days... no, years.

And Montreal Rock Band Somewhere? Exactly five minutes and four seconds of your life will just disappear instantly. (In a good way, not like in some sort of brutal kidnapping type way) Favorite track: Montreal Rock Band Somewhere.

about

Happyness' debut album - Weird Little Birthday, expanded to include 4 new bonus tracks the album follows a whirlwind 2014, which ultimately saw the South London trio make NME’s Best Newcomers list, as well as The Sunday Times Best Albums of The Year.

Weird Little Birthday is not quite a concept album about a boy who shares his birthday with Jesus Christ and eventually is driven insane with jealousy. It was largely recorded in the band’s own Jelly Boy Studios, and was mixed by Adam Lasus (Yo La Tengo, Daniel Johnston). It also features Ed Harcourt with vocals on Pumpkin Noir. The album showcases the band’s more melancholic, introspective nature alongside their youthful exuberance, dealing with the morning after the night before, and how, alas, not everything can invoke a dream house party soundtracked by Pavement.

The limited edition 12" vinyl does not include the 4 extra bonus tracks (tracks 14-17) but does include a copy of the album on CD.
