Brooklyn’s BANGLADEAFY will unveil their anxiously anticipated Narcopaloma EP to the masses next Friday, and today the record becomes ingestible through an early stream at Noisey.
Engineered and mixed by Jonathan Vergara at Pancake Studios, with Atif Haq’s drums having been recorded by Mike Gatto, and all bass, samplers, and keys tracked by the band’s Jon Ehlers, BANGLADEAFY’s Narcopaloma deploys seven new tunes, the long-awaited follow-up to their 2013-released The Briefcase.
Alongside the exclusive pre-release stream of the new EP, Noisey digs into the origin, creation, and delivery of the band’s sound with an in-depth interrogation of BANGLADEAFY, in part noting of the album, “The NYC duo’s ultra-complex blurts of drum and bass insanity pebble-dash the inside of your skull like Satan’s own toilet bowel, and Narcopaloma, their new EP, comes off like Lightning Bolt and the Melvins eating big, greedy spoonfuls of each other’s candy-colored vomit.”

The humans, frothing for another hit of that intoxicating thing BANGLADEAFY does with their mostly instrumental, technical, sci-fi/progressive auditory bombast, have welcomed the news of a new record from this prime pair with widespread approval. Metal Injection issued alongside their premiere of the album’s first single, “’Termites’ bends and twists endlessly though cluttered hallways of riffs and insane passages that just might make you pause the track to get off your ass and practice. Seriously, this sounds like four dudes trying to keep up with one another… not two dudes crushing it. Observe!” MetalSucks came in offering, “the only way the band’s name could be even more accurate is if it was ‘Bangladeafinitelygreatmusicians.’ The skill with which these two dudes create spazzy mathcore ensures that they’re more than just a band with a great gimmick… it’s a noodly maze that defies easy categorization and demands repeat listens.” Metal Injection hails BANGLADEAFY’s new output with, “The mostly instrumental drum and bass duo sound like the bastard child of Primus, Rush and Animals As Leaders… Ehlers’ spastic and busy bass work is matched in intensity by Haq’s drums. The swirling fusion-like rhythms and subtle keyboard swells are the audio equivalent of an amusement park ride that leaves you breathless when it’s over and makes you immediately get in line to ride it again.”
