Weekend Warrior, April 13 - 15

A grimy, alluring swirl of punk-jazz-noise thrown into a musical cauldron, Taiwan Housing Project melds a diverse range of sounds into a most excellent sonic stew, which will be served up at the batting cages of Everybody Hits this evening. It’s hard to pin down or compartmentalize the band’s collective sound, and in part, that’s what makes things so intriguing. At first, there’s a sweaty, primal force; the assemblage of instrumentation and ideas don’t automatically align. However, as it saturates into one’s system, an alternative circuitry develops. Once those newfound connections are made, torrential affect takes hold. As we await the release of their forthcoming debut LP Covert Contracts, post-punk trio Control Top delivers a calculated fury that’ll actually make you dance. The exuberant, eclectic, experimentation of Oakland-based trio Preening ties this lineup, presented by WKDU, together. – Michael Colavita

Buzz Alert! Bodega announces debut album "Endless Scroll" + unveils new video

NYC's romance with Post Punk is not over yet, and we ain't gonna complain about it. The seminal movement from the 80's that triggered the first wave of creative yet minimalist DIY rock already influenced a slew of break-out local artists including Interpol, The Rapture, Liars, Clap Your Hands Say Yeah and Parquet Court among others. In the last few months, quintet Bodega (previously known as Bodega Bay) has made progress to potentially add their name to this list, gaining a lot of attention both in the city and at SXSW with their super-fun live performances enhanced by musical wild card Nikki Belfiglio's, an effervescent backing vocalist that also plays a range of percussive instruments. The trademark of the band's stripped down but driven sound, however, lies with Ben Hozie's semi spoken-word style of singing. The band just unveiled this video for single "Can't Knock the Hustle" and announced the released of their debut album Endless Scroll, scheduled for a Jun 1st release. Bodega also landed an opening gig for five Franz Ferdinand shows in April (including the Brooklyn Steel date on the 15th) and will tour Europe in May. Buzz alert, indeed!





Debut Grift Company EP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Wrecking Crew's Curly Castro & Zilla Rocca just collaborated on a freshly released, self-titled EP as Grift Company. Throwing back to a point in time when lyricism and flow drove the vehicle in unison with the beat, there’s a grimy, stripped-down authenticity - one that sticks as the crisscrossing, smooth-talking emcees sync ideas as catalysts to chain reactions. One could say it serves as a flashback or a means to remember, but it’s orchestrated through mature, experienced craftsmen, so let's call it - revitalization.





Bambara celebrates release of noisy third LP at ALPHAVILLE 04.13

The first instinct when hearing Bambara is to label it as a noise-rock outfit, but pretty soon there comes a hesitation. The New York transplants, originally from Georgia, bring a sort of Western rhythm into the affair. The howling guitars start sounding like an ominous wind ripping across the new frontier, the groaning vocals become an impassioned southern drawl. That may be overstating certain influences, but it is true that the core of Bambara’s sound is a mutation of guitar music, manifesting in near-forgotten influences (desert rock?) and otherworldly contortions of guitar noise. That remains just as true on the band’s third album, Shadow on Everything, released last week. It’s a dark, effects-heavy piece of post-punk that draws apt comparisons to the deep, tense and troubled music of Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds. On April 13th, a week after that release, Bambara will celebrate the album live performing with added accompaniment from strings and saxophone at ALPHAVILLE. Listen to Shadow on Everything below. – Cameron Carr
