Bodega Bay are a New York-based art rock sextet. The band uses familiar musical ideas (think Velvets, Pavement, Wire) in tandem with improvisation, sociopolitical commentary, performance, text, disruption, and assorted experimentation to arrive at their own distinct creations. Their latest release arrives in the form of a 33 1/3 lyric and art book, accompanied by a download code for 33 songs (which are unsurprisingly overwhelmingly good). There's a freedom and playfulness in what their doing, underlying the very plainly stated truths of so many of their songs (which, again, are really, really good).
