Under the Bridge
Superhuman Happiness: "Needles & Pins"
Stuart Bogie brings his newest musical adventure, Superhuman Happiness, to DUMBO for a beat-tacular street rendition of "Needles & Pins", which will be available as a 7-Inch/digital single starting June 21 on Royal Potato Family.
Superhuman Happiness was founded in 2008 to seek joy and love through shared rhythm and melody, composed and improvised. They have one CD, Stuart Bogie's Superhuman Happiness -- Fall Down Seven Time Stand Up Eight, and one 7" entitled GMYL/Hounds. Members are known for their work with Antibalas, the Sway Machinery, TV on the Radio, Battle Apples, The Phenomonal Handclap Band, Caural, The Roots, James Hunter, King Expressors, Passion Pit, Celebration, Holly Miranda, Foals and the inimitable MC Chris. The band regularly rehearses, composes, and records together, engaging in various improvisatory musical games currently being compiled for implementation in widespread applications.
You simply must see this lineup live -- their energy is matched only by their musical chops. You can find out their tour dates (including Celebrate Brooklyn in Prospect Park later this summer) at www.superhumanhappiness.com.
