Bodega – “Endless Scroll” LP
The debut album by this Brooklyn post-punk band. And, yeah, very post-punk it is too – think Gang Of Four, XTC, Fall etc. – but even more so this is concentrated New York: from Television to Sonic Youth to God Is My Co-Pilot to Les Savy Fav/The Strokes to LCD Sound System to Parquet Courts… Care-free, minimal, art-punk creativity meets indie-rock suss, topped by some razor sharp wit – here is a singer who’s words you want to hear (which isn’t as common a proposition as you would hope). Recorded and produced by Austin Brown (Parquet Courts). Comes with a top-quality lyric-booklet.
