BODEGA announce debut album, ‘Endless Scroll’

They’ve also shared new song, ‘Can’t Knock The Hustle’.

Brooklynites BODEGA have announced details of their debut album.

‘Endless Scroll’ will be out on 1st June, produced by Parquet Courts’ Austin Brown. It features the already-released ‘How Did This Happen ?!’ alongside brand new track, ‘Can’t Knock The Hustle’.

“A few years ago I found myself working at an obnoxious soft serve shoppe in Union Square with this great Jamaican guy named Steven,” says the band’s Ben Hozie, “who was an aspiring rapper. We used to engage in strange late-night Socratic discussions and the day Jay Z’s Magna Carta Holy Grail came out he led me into a whirlpool of a syllogism that lead to the disastrous results heard on the track. Lesson learned: logic means nothing without context (in this case, Jay Z’s). Unfortunately, the premise that ’capital=beyond critique’ is mostly considered sound in our artificially sweetened augmented-reality world.” He continues, “Care for a sample? For the advertisement of the song we wanted to make a proper pop clip, one I hope Steven appreciates. Nikki (Belfiglio) directed it and Taylor Christoffel photographed it.”

BODEGA head to the UK next month for a brief string of dates.
