NYC Record of the Month: Bangladeafy - "Narcopaloma"





NYC Record of the Month: Bangladeafy - "Narcopaloma"

We are here, desperately tapping the big HELP button on our Life Alert pendant because the latest release from NYC's Bangladeafy has left us bowled over on the floor. Narcopaloma, the band's newest EP, is an unrelenting chaos machine, delivering proggy riffage at its absolute best--there's not a single passage on here that feels either half baked or overworked. The duo of Jon Ehlers and Atif Haq also drop such technically intense licks that any four-piece band would be left eating their dust. Make no mistake, Narcopaloma is a mammoth work (well deserving of multiple listens), but it manages to feel consistently innovative rather than overly indulgent. The record kicks off with "Termites," a frenzied, sonic bomb that deals in both sledge-hammer, driving, brutishness, and jazzy, finessed grooves. "Act Like An Adult," the album's third track, bursts its way through melodies, and puts Haq's slick drum chops on full display. The EP's devilish bends and turns culminate in "Trillionaire," a tune that somehow forges the band's melodic mathcore affection with Latin-feel ostinato. It's an unlikely match, but then again, there's nothing predictable about this band. Check out "Termites" off Narcopaloma streaming below, and seriously, do yourself a favor and check out Bangladeafy playing with Seven)Suns and Cleric 9/27 at St. Vitus. We'll hedge our bets now that these are guys to watch. - Olivia Sisinni
