With wild minimalism and sharp wit, BODEGA revitalizes the rock and roll vocabulary under the influence of post punk, contemporary pop, hip-hop, kraut rock, and folk-derived narrative songwriting.

With the eyes of filmmakers, Ben Hozie (guitar, vocals) and Nikki Belfiglio (vocals) turn the documentary on themselves, finding the political in the personal. Formerly of prankster rock collective Bodega Bay, known for its outlandish critical stunts, their blend of essay and confession bears witness to the harsh poetry of being human in the digital age.

Joined by Montana Simone (drums), Madison Velding-Vandam (guitar) and Heather Elle (bass), BODEGA are unveiling their debut single, "How Did This Happen ?!," a standout from their many live shows around New York City. Accompanying the single is a 360-degree interactive video showcasing the band's unique live performance.

"How Did This Happen ?!" is the first song from BODEGA's forthcoming debut album due out this summer. It was recorded and produced by Austin Brown (Parquet Courts) on the same Tascam 388 tape machine used for their LP Light Up Gold. It was mixed and mastered by Jonathan Schenke at Dr. Wu's.

One of the most fun parts of this ongoing Bandcamp project — when I stumble across a release that knocks me sideways but absolutely zero information about it is out there on the internet beyond, like, the stream. This is the case with Weekend Athlete’s demo, a breathtaking collection of haunting and minimal emo-tinged rock in the spirit of Waxahatchee’s American Weekend. So who is this person? Their Bandcamp artist photo shows a guitarist standing in front of studio soundproofing that looks astonishingly like the baffles we have at XPN HQ, and the person pictured sort of looks like it may be a member of Aster More — who did record at XPN once upon a time — but their face is in the shadows and I cannot tell for certain. The mystery remains but the songs are great.
