What’s Your Rupture? have already released records by Parquet Courts. Their latest release is a debut LP from an urbane bunch of Brooklynites named Bodega. It was produced by Austin Brown - you know, from Parquet Courts - and was recorded onto the same Tascam tape machine as Light Up Gold, the acclaimed second LP from Parquet Courts. Guess who Endless Scroll sounds like.

These people are cool. They come from Brooklyn, New York for starters then they have a Parquet Court recording them and they have that detached New York thing going on in spades. They couldn't care less either. They care so little they've called the opening track '?!'. It sounds like the time LCD Soundsystem played CBGBs in 1978. All Talking Heads minimalism and vocal rants from a band so cool that on 'Name Escape' they *almost* use the bassline from 'Papa's Got A New Pigbag'.
And this is how they go on. They start up on some kind of crazy, catchy, danceable riff and keep going with it whilst vocals come in and out of the mix. There's a Fall-esque narrative going on some of the tracks particularly on the excellent 'Boxes For the Move' which has one of those dank, spindly riffs the Fall used on tracks like 'Hard Life in Country' and Ben Hozie tells a story relating to carrying boxes through his cool streets. I could have done with it going on five times as long as it does.
It's a rare moment of reflection on an album of general upbeat jerkiness. You know its going to be an utter blast live. Its jammed full of catchy art punk but in tracks like 'Jack In Titanic' the band show that they already have future classics in their locker. They are doing well.
