BODEGA – Put On Your Blue Suede Post-Punk Shoes And Pirouette Yourself Dizzy With Their 2nd Album ‘BROKEN EQUIPMENT’

23 March 2022

Who: Indie team from New York that scored
one of the best albums of 2018 with their cracking
debut Endless Stroll.

Out: 11 March 2022 – order info here.

Album info: 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.

NME says: “The New York band’s second album sees their wiry, sceptical post-punk slowly giving way to warmer, more romantic ideas… For a band with complex philosophies and
critical theories to burn, BODEGA’s most vital moments come when they lower their guard
down and just let it all out.”
Full review here . Score: 4/5.

Turn Up The Volume: The New Yorkers still operate on Parquet Courts
playground (not a bad thing), but here on their second full length they funk-up
their post-punk disco beats, they turn up the temperature and they activate every
muscle and every nerve in your itching body even more than on their debut LP.
A fucktastic touchdown!

Put on your blue suede post-punk shoes and
pirouette yourself dizzy without falling over
your own feet…
