New York’s B Boys (Andrew Kerr, Brendon Avalos, Britton Walker) find inspiration in the chaos that surrounds them: the aggressive attitude and sonic lawlessness of the city they live, work, and breathe in every day. Their raw, yet meticulous style is characterized by rhythmic complexity, commanding riffs, and introspective lyrics that are as playful and self-aware as they are cutting. Across two acclaimed releases on Captured Tracks—2016’s No Worry No Mind EP and 2017’s debut full-length Dada—B Boys explore solitude and self-reflection through sharp, high-energy shouts and melodic mediations. Now, the sprightly sarcasm and acerbic commentary continues on the band’s highly anticipated sophomore LP, Dudu. Recorded by Gabe Wax (Deerhunter, Ought, Crumb) at Outlier Inn and mixed by Andy Chugg (Pill, Pop. 1280, Bambara) to be released on July 12, 2019. http://bboysdada.tumblr.com/

‘The best critique is self-critique’ is the mantra of Brooklyn art rock unit BODEGA. With wild minimalism and sharp wit, they revitalize the rock and roll vocabulary under the influence of post punk, hip-hop, kraut rock, and folk-derived narrative songwriting. Still on the endless tour behind their debut LP ENDLESS SCROLL - Ben Hozie (conductor, vocals, guitar), Nikki Belfiglio (art director, vocals, samples, hi hat), Heather Elle (bass), and Madison Velding Vandam (lead guitar, producer) have recently recruited Tai Lee (formerly a performer/drummer in the show STOMP) as their new stand-up percussionist (original drummer Montana Simone has left to pursue her painting and sculpture). The art rock group has written and recorded a whole new batch of material w/ Tai (produced by Madison) that will be released soon (form yet TBD). http://bodeganyc.tumblr.com/

Blues Lawyer is Rob I. Miller (Mall Walk), Elyse Schrock (The World), Nic Russo (Dick Stusso), and Alejandra Alcala (Preening). Recorded over two days, Guess Work combines punk-like pace and concision with a measure of pop sentiment and wit, eliciting comparisons to bands such as Television Personalities, the Vaselines, and Wire. https://emotional-response-recs.bandcamp.com/album/guess-work
