BODEGA Announce New LP 'Broken Equipment', Stream "Doers"

New York art-rock/punk band BODEGA have announced the release of their second full-length album 'Broken Equipment'.

The follow-up to their 2018's debut Endless Scroll, was produced by the band's Ben Hozie himself with Bobby Lewis (Bodega’s NYC live sound mixer) and will be out on March 11 2022 via WYR?. Pre-order your copy here

Broken Equipment was inspired by a book club. In the early months of 2020, the Brooklyn art-punk incendiaries gathered together with close friends to study the works of a wide range of philosophers. Passionate debates lasting long into the night became a regular occurrence, motivating the band to become as ideologically unified as the weighty tomes they were reading. Broken Equipment is Bodega’s attempt to interrogate the external factors that make them who they are, propelling existential quandaries with tongue-in-cheek humour, highly personal lyrics, and irresistible grooves.

Since Bodega’s formation in 2016, Ben and Nikki (who previously played together in the band Bodega Bay) have experienced a rare meteoric rise. The duo double as filmmakers, earning acclaim for their 2020 erotic drama PVT Chat starring Peter Vack, Julia Fox, and other recognizable faces from the Safdie Brothers’ cinematic universe. When the pandemic forced them to hit pause, they used the opportunity to regroup with drummer/performance artist Tai Lee, bassist/book club leader Adam See, and lead guitarist Dan Ryan. 

The album’s 12 songs are set in present day New York City, packing in references to contemporary issues of algorithmic targeting, media gentrification, and the band itself.

Check out the album's tracklist and watch the video for their new single "Doers" below.

New Entry: Phantom Limb Unleash New Single "Shave Your Head"

Birmingham, AL  indie rock/alt band Phantom Limb have unleashed their new single "Shave Your Head".

The song is taken from their upcoming sophomore album 'Pastoral', which will be available on November 16 through Earth Libraries. Get it here.

Frontman Andrew Laningham explains, “‘Shave Your Head’ is about needing to destroy a part of yourself in order to figure out which parts of life are the most crucial,” he explained. “When I was writing the lyrics to this song, I was stuck in a place where I felt like my daily routine of writing endless emails and working all the time was taking over my personal life. I started having these dreams where I was pulling out my teeth and shaving my head. I felt like I needed to cut off some part of my current self in order to feel normal again, which was scary.”

"‘Shave Your Head’ is built around this hocketed guitar part. Hocketing is this composition technique where you take a melody that could be played by one instrument, and split it up between multiple ones. It’s something Gregorian Monks used a lot in choral compositions. I think it’s interesting because two instruments are ‘sharing’ a musical idea, which is a theme I really liked playing with on this record."
