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.
After a year of touring behind their debut LP ENDLESS SCROLL, last winter the group headed to Power Station in Connecticut to record seven new tracks. The resulting EP marks a series of firsts for the group: it is the band’s first recording with Tai Lee, it’s first session at a proper studio, and the first BODEGA disc produced within the group - production was handled by lead guitarist Madison Velding Vandam. The resulting collection of tracks marks a lush new sonic direction for the group - widescreen multi-tracked guitars and a giant sounding rhythm section complement sharp songwriting and yearning vocal melodies.
The short disc covers various thematic ground ——> history alive in the present, the sadness of modern consumption, adultery via sexting, and a song set inside an actual bodega. In addition to the EP’s breezy hook-filled songs, the LP’s B-side features an extended improvised version of the group’s staple track ’Truth is not Punishment’ (an abbreviated ‘radio edit’ of this track will be available on streaming services).
