Editorial Reviews

Happy Birthday is Kyle Thomas (aka King Tuff), Chris Weisman, and Ruth Garbus. They formed in November 2008 to play one show at the punk-space "Tinderbox" (RIP), in their hometown Brattleboro, Vermont. They enjoyed playing with each other so much that they decided to keep doing it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Catchy Guitar Rock July 30, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
Bout time! Something new and refreshing with some great guitar licks. Been looking for a new band with a cool/unique sound, but can still rock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yummy. March 2, 2011
By Cloie
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Happy Birthday is the perfect blend of garage rock, punk, and a hint of shoegaze. Every song on this CD is catchy in it's own way, yet Happy Birthday maintains a consistent stream of edge and fluff through out. The guitar solos on this CD bleed out and wrap you in a cotton candy cocoon. For fans of Hunx and His Punx, Nobunny, King Tuff, and Jay Reatard.

5.0 out of 5 stars a new instant favorite October 9, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Bubbly pop albums aren't commonly packed with the highest nutritional value, yet attempts to expand this plenty-enjoyable-yet-easily-forgettable stigma have only had moderate success. A couple more prominent routes are neo-psychedlia and noise pop. The former, made popular by a lot of the Elephant 6 folks (i.e. Apples in Stereo, Olivia Tremor Control, Of Montreal), doesn't always feel focused enough to constitute a pop album and this may not be the intention of the artists. However the emphasis on bubbly pop sensibilities still remains, albeit in the setting of a 60+ minute journey instead of bite size pieces. Alternatively, the noise camp (i.e. Times New Viking, Wavves) is more set on blending and obscuring pop hooks with a screen of noise to give tracks a bit more angularity while scuffing up a shiny surface.

Enter the comfortable stroll of Happy Birthday, one of the latest additions to the Sub Pop roster. Their latest album clocks in at just over 30 minutes, but the replay value remains fairly unrivaled against the majority of releases this year. They pull elements from both aforementioned paths, but more efficiently weigh and balance the components. There's plenty of fuzz and psychedelic breakdowns, but the result is a more focused, addictive form of unapologetic pop music that would easily fit in with the Elephant 6 crowd (but that seems more intent on sticking to your sides). There's still a strong emphasis on harmony and melody, but there's just as much focus on song structure.

"Subliminal Message" is probably the most immediately loveable track. Backed by soothing synth and an 80s backbeat it's a near perfect passive love song a la "Every Breath You Take.
