    Streamlined and minimal but bursting with intelligence, humour and ideas, BODEGA are the real deal.

    Whoever is singing, the beats are choppy and the mood intense. A revelation. [Oct 2018, p.24]

    Wedding ramshackle rant-punk to deadpan, slackerish tunes is a positively Jurassic move for a new band. But this five-piece nail the absurdity of contemporary life with that surprisingly evergreen formula.

    Bodega aren't doing anything new or unusual, as the easy-to-grasp reference points make clear, but they make it all sound factory-fresh and super-fun--and because of those two factors, fans of any of the bands mentioned above will likely find Endless Scroll quite worth checking out.

    Endless Scroll sets out to shake the listener from their complacency, because in this age there’s just no time for ambivalence. It’s a fantastic debut from one of the most exciting new bands around.

    Blistering, incisive and occasionally even surprising, Endless Scroll is anything but dull.

    Endless Scroll is 14 snappy, spirited and occasionally incantatory songs.

    It’s fitting BODEGA’s debut has all the essentials covered; wry wit, shrewd observations and a vision of art rock’s finest punk party. Like, listen, like, like.

    It is not the most groundbreaking sound musically but certainly innovative in approach and original in delivery and presentation.

    Debut album Endless Scroll is an enjoyable but occasionally generic combination of carnival-barker speak-sing and new-wave post-punk influences.

    Perhaps Bodega will eventually create something that accurately summarizes our content-focused existence and kicks us out of our collective stupor. As it stands, though, Endless Scroll is merely a kinda-good album doomed to get lost in the content thickets.

    Although Endless Scrolls suffers from a lack of musical variety or sophistication, there’s a brilliant curveball in the yearning, melodic Charlie, a prettily haunting ode to a friend who died by drowning, which hints at emotional depths to come.

    Overall, Endless Scroll feels self-righteous and misses the crucial idea that insurrection can actually be fun. [Jul 2018, p.108]

    Bodega's quirky post-punk album blends post-punk and indie rock together along with great lyrics and a contemporary feel
