Any new song from Brooklyn art punk group BODEGA is always an event for us, so we were pleasantly surprised to find a fresh Xtra Equipment EP this morning.
This additional release includes B-sides and bonus tracks recorded throughout 2020-2021 along with the rest of the songs that made it to their amazing latest album Broken Equipment, a masterful collection of creative, propulsive and unstoppable numbers.
BODEGA is also an exceptional live band, and starting from today they have returned on the road again, with many shows already scheduled in the USA and in the UK later this year.
Make sure to catch them live if you have a chance, because every concert is super dynamic, completely unique, shapeshifting and always featuring hits, rarities and tons of surprises. Also, an average length of the set is approximately 80-100 minutes. Find more information about the dates and tickets here.

Earlier this year Brooklyn art punk group BODEGA released their sophomore LP Broken Equipment, a masterful collection of creative, propulsive and unstoppable numbers. For one of them, titled “How Can I Help Ya?” they have shared a new music video, shot on DV by James Winstanley.
The group also has just finished a long UK and EU tour, an absolutely remarkable set of dates, on which they played an hour and 40 minute long shows every day, none of which had the same setlist. Every concert is super dynamic, completely unique, shapeshifting and always featuring hits, rarities and tons of surprises.
In Summer and Autumn BODEGA will return on the road again, with many shows already scheduled in the USA and again in the UK. Make sure to catch them live, if you have a chance (find more information about the dates and tickets here).
On March 11 NY art punk collective BODEGA will release Broken Equipment (via What’s Your Rupture), their highly anticipated new album.
We have heard some greatsongs out of it already and now the band shares one more — the short and punchy ripper “Statuette on the Console”, which is presented in 9 variants, each performed in a different language (Dutch, English, French, German, Greek, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish and Ukrainian). This is a very cool thing to do, and by listening to all of the versions the song will definitely get stuck in your head for the rest of day (or week).
If that is not enough for you, there is also a music video for the single released, directed by the band’s Nikki Belfiglio.
