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).
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 songwriting. 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.
