New York City-based duo Bangladeafy is here to confuse the everloving hell out of you with their new record Housefly. Get in early on the insanity with the band's 70+ second new song "Harvest" now and try not to have your head explode.
"Contrary to previous Bangladeafy albums, there is no electric bass on this release," said bassist, pianist, and vocalist Jon Ehlers. "Everything that is heard on this album was performed live on hardware synths, sample pads, and acoustic drumming. We felt that we said what we needed to say on bass and were not interested in creating another acrobatic bass and drum album.
"I hesitate to say that this album is a 'quarantine' album because most of it was written before the virus hit, but it's safe to say that the arrangement, segues, and motifs were certainly a response to the anxiety created by COVID-19. There was supposed to be more songs tracked in a studio for this album, but safety precautions prevented that from happening. Rather than sit and wait for this whole thing to blow over, we made the best of a bad situation and adapted by adding some new clay to our sculpture."
The drums for Housefly were recorded and mixed by Mike Gatto of Gatto Records. Housefly was otherwise engineered, mixed, and mastered by Jonathan Vergara of Pancake Studios, and completed with artwork by Bryan Elkins. Pre-order Housefly here via Bandcamp and here via Nefarious Industries.
