Say Hi is Eric Elbogen. His eighth full length will be out on Barsuk Records in late 2014. In anticipation of the release, he'll be performinga number of North American shows this spring with the very fantastic Big Scary. New songs will be debuted and old songs will be revisited. The shows will be intimate and friendly, personnel will likely be shared and pun-centric jokes and oddball anecdotes will be encouraged. The format of Say Hi's set will not be dissimilar to the one he performed as part of Barsuk's 15th anniversary celebration. Those who were in attendance can attest to the fact that not a single pair of buttocks were able to withstand the urge to wobble once Elbogen's chewy dance moves and huey synthesizers filled the room.
Tom Iansek and Jo Syme emerged on Australia's music scene as Big Scary in 2006 with a recognizable chemistry, genre-defying spirit, and a less-is-more approach to songwriting.
After a series of early self-released singles, and the intimately crafted debut album Vacation, which saw Big Scary travel the globe. A homecoming beckoned, and Tom and Jo holed up in a house-turned-recording-studio-tuned-headquarters in the Australian countryside. Nine months later Big Scary gave birth to their second album - the boldly titled Not Art.

The music of Breathe Owl Breathe has always been steeped in magic. Their songs seem to occupy that hazy space between wakefulness and dreaming—where the tangible, earthly world meets the transcendental. It's been nearly a decade since this trio of friends began making music in a remote cabin tucked away in a Northern Michigan river valley, but despite the growth and experiences that have happened along the way—including recording five albums, releasing a children's book, and logging several cross-country tours—the band's sound is still deeply rooted in the mysticism, warmth and wide-eyed wonder that imbued their earliest songs.
Passage of Pegasus, Breathe Owl Breathe's sixth album, is in many ways a return to that world. But it also marks an evolution: the songwriting has grown, the compositions are more textured. This is a rich, complex record: Each song is like a little diorama, constructed with engaging imagery, beautiful harmonies, and affectional (at times minimal, other times cacophonous) instrumentation. Crafted over a two-year period in various homes and studios between the West Coast and Midwest, many of the songs went through intense versioning, while others waited in the wings for the rest to find their positions on the album. As such, Passage of Pegasus captures the spirit of an odyssey, and the listener can't help but be pulled along for the ride.
