Album of the Month - July 2018
Bodega - Endless Scroll
Bodega is the Brooklyn-based band of guitarist Ben Hozie, synth player Nikki Belfiglio, stand-up drummer Montana Simone, lead guitarist Madison Velding-VanDam (of The Wants) and bassist Heather Elle (of Please No Radio).
Pair traditional post-punk sounds (think Parquet Courts, Ought, The Fall) with modern electronica and snappy narrative lyricism, and you've got Bodega's buzz-worthy debut album. Endless Scroll, recorded and produced by Austin Brown of Parquet Courts, debuts sharp-wit-lyrics, bouncing bass lines, and scrambling guitars. It's itchy, scratchy perfect pop that makes you want to sing along... even without knowing the words. The LP's fourteen songs offer a high-energy, humorous but earnest thirty-four minutes of listening pleasure.
Available here on Rough Trade Exclusive Clear Colored Vinyl, Indie Exclusive Teal Colored Vinyl, Standard Black Vinyl and CD. All formats come with a Bonus CD of 30+ minutes of live material.
