majikcaesar Superhuman Happiness has adopted an entirely different sound... what used to be childish and playful has developed into a mature, even angsty sound. I blame the current state in the world. Nevertheless, the vocals from Dia Luna and the instrumentals by Bogie and the gang are as impressive as ever. Still, this album leaves me longing for another S.H.H. record like Hands where, when you put it on the turntable, you know good times will be had. Favorite track: Beacon.

Bury me by where my baby walks Everything you dream of in this world comes from below; it's possible for you. Start again Alpha Omega, different name Nothing you hold will be the same I am the wicked and the brave Dancing in the light of yesterday Building up a pyramid I build it up and start again Wings of a vulture say your name Knowing this body ain't the same I am the wicked and the brave Dancing in the ash of yesterday Bury me by where my baby walks When you dance the Nile Will you find me waiting? After every mile Will you find me waiting? With the Pharaoh's treasure Will you find me waiting? As your heart is measured Will you find me waiting? When you rise again Will you find me waiting? With a dying flower Will you find me waiting? In the final hour Will you find me waiting? Bury me by where my baby walks Everything you dream of in this world comes from below; it's possible for you Start again Alpha Omega, different name Nothing you hold will be the same I am the wicked and the brave Dancing in the light of yesterday Building up a pyramid I build it up and start again Wings of a vulture say your name Knowing this body ain't the same I am the wicked and the brave Dancing in the ash of yesterday

Victory 05:23
Well if you did choose your choice Of a fugitive's straining voice Why do you clutch the scar? When a victory's not so far? If you hear the faintest melody today These lines are filled with all the time it takes Well what if you could choose a change When the day has a bitter taste And you're crumblin’, just coming apart And a victory feels so far If you hear the longest melody today These lines are filled with all the blood it takes In our life sublime We're leaping to the other side The diamond or the distant star Nothing's far from you ‘Cos in our life sublime We're leaping to the other side The diamond or the distant star Nothing's far from you Well and you did choose your choice You're a choir with a single voice Look at you, whole the scar You know a victory's not so far If you hear the freest melody today These lines are filled with all the time it takes So don't believe The whispers from the other side They agonize or justify the star far from you 'Cos in our life sublime We're leaping to the other side The diamond or the distant star Nothing's far from you You

about

Superhuman Happiness is a musical collective led by Brooklyn multi-instrumentalist Stuart Bogie, who is known for his work with Arcade Fire (2013-present), Iron and Wine (2010-2013), TV on the Radio (2007-2009), and Antibalas (2001-2012). The group has announced their third full-length album, Beacon, which marks the 10-year anniversary of the band, and arrives October 19 via their new label, Yeggs Records.
Beacon features vocalist Dia Luna alongside Bogie and longtime collaborator, Eric Biondo. Special guest appearances by Richard Reed Parry (Arcade Fire), Colin Stetson (Bon Iver, Cold Equations), and Dave Harrington (Darkside) bring distinction and new character to the sound of the album.

While Superhuman Happiness has earned a reputation for ass-shaking, euphoric dance music, this collection of songs takes a darker and more emotional turn. Written and recorded in the haunted attic of an old carriage house in Pittsburgh, the album delves into themes of sacrifice, isolation, and rebirth. Nevertheless, Bogie’s ability to consistently inspire his collaborators is the catalyst for an emotional journey through darkness that never loses sight of redemption. A beacon.

Production by Bogie, Ian Hersey, Mathew Scheiner, and Josh Kaufman.
