Based out of the Big Apple, BODEGA puts punk rock back in the context of its artsy seventies roots. When this five-piece performs together, you feel like you’re transported back to the glory days of CBGB or Max’s Kansas City, watching an act wedged in the middle of Devo and The Velvet Underground. The lyrics themselves are quirky and fun but not without their own set of quick-witted observations.
BODEGA’s been teasing fans with a set of singles and accompanying music videos, and this Friday they release their full-length Endless Scroll. Most of the album’s fourteen tracks clock in well under three minutes but altogether provide for a cohesive and intriguing tonal journey. BODEGA last joined us in March for SXSW and they’re returning on Saturday August 4th, so get a jump start with one of Endless Scroll’s more tame offerings, “Charlie”.
