Bodega were back with a new EP, titled “Shiny New Model”, that will be out October 11th via What’s Your Rupture. For it, the band recorded at Power Station in Connecticut with guitarist Madison Velding Vandam producing. This is a much bigger, sleeker Bodega than we heard on their terrific 2018 album, “Endless Scroll”, though the themes of alienation and encroaching technology remain, as do their way with hooks. You can watch the video for the EP’s title track, co-directed by the group’s Nikki Belfiglio, below.

This was one of our favourite records is still Bodega’s “Endless Scroll” released back in 2018, and we’re very excited for new music from the NYC band.

Brooklyn’s finest released their fantastic debut album. With wild minimalism and sharp wit, they revitalize the rock and roll vocabulary under the influence of post punk, contemporary pop, hip-hop, kraut rock, and folk-derived narrative song-writing. it’s itchy, scratchy perfect pop that makes you want to sing along..even without knowing the words. Bodega’s debut LP “Endless Scroll” is a collective dialogue with the machine and the public. Ping-ponging vocals are set to Ben’s deconstructed guitar, Nikki’s samples of old and new technology, the driving minimalism of standing drummer Montana Simone (IDIO Gallery), the angular spasms of lead guitar Madison Velding-Vandam (The Wants) and the tight, hypnotic bass lines of Heather Elle (Please No Radio). “Endless Scroll” was recorded and produced by Austin Brown (Parquet Courts) on the same Tascam 388 tape machine used for their LP “Light Up Gold”. It was mixed and mastered by Jonathan Schenke (Eaters) at Dr. Wu’s. The LP’s fourteen songs offer a high-energy, humorous but earnest thirty-four minutes. For fans of Parquet Courts, The Fall and Wire.
