I will review EFT techniques that have been developed recently for dealing with the infrared dynamics of ordinary fluids and of superfluids. Gravity does not play an essential role in the construction (though it can be added straightforwardly to the system), yet certain applications resemble very closely the EFT approach to gravity wave emission by binary systems. I will describe in some detail one such application, as well as a possible application to cosmology.
