Following the taut, snappy mini-album that was 2019’s ‘Shiny New Model’, New York’s Bodega serve up a second full-length LP of snarky, caustic observations. Inspired by Heidegger’s theory of “thrownness” and lockdown book clubs, ‘Broken Equipment’ is another intelligent collection of angular, arty post-punk.

Here’s the first single from Bodega’s upcoming album “Broken Equipment”. “Doers” sports a fatter sound than we’ve heard from Bodega before but, lyrically, still finds them critiquing our technology-dependent world, in this case the state of hyperproductivity many of us seem to be in.

The follow-up to the band’s acclaimed debut album, Endless Scroll (2018), and 2019’s Shiny New Model EP, 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. 

Big one for the Dinked series here, as the Brooklyn post-punk group’s long-awaited second gets crammed with an alternate glow-in-the-dark sleeve, a flexi with a non-LP track, and an exclusive vinyl colour variant.

Bodega’s album “Broken Equipment” is out March 11th on WYR?
