Birthdays - Howolding Girls
Early Birthdays Polaroid of mine from the york ave dungeon maybe two years ago? An apparition of Samual Yager past, huddled on the floor playing by the light of his electronics.
In the real world, I live in Saratoga Springs, NY. Do you know where that is? Probably not, and the only people that do are because in the summer its a friggin horse/racetrack tourist trap for families. We don’t exactly have a local ‘scene,’ and our only exception for good music was Charlie Everywhere, before Josh & Sarah changed their name to Phantogram, who you’re likely familiar with. Four years ago I can remember seeing them play locally weekly, oh those were the days!
Anyways Phantogram has deservedly moved on to tour round the world, and though we’ve already lost him to Boston, Samual Yager who is Birthdays, is another Saratogian you should be paying attention to. Two summers ago I was working a terrible restaurant serving job and Sam was working at the hospital and conveniently are schedules lined up with out trying that we ended up meeting at ye old coffee shope every afternoon to chill. He’s a talented kid that was just beginning to experiment with electro pop & beats when he played an awesome show in my dungeon at the ol’ york ave house. He stuff is accelerating quickly to more danceable and upbeat, without losing its playful, experimental roots.
Grab his first release on cassette, Hawaiian Punch Wave, from Impose Records here
