Bodega Satellite

For those who love the Pixies and wish that Frank Black had spent more time screaming his conspiracy theories in Spanish, Bodega Satellite is your band. It is impossible to listen to their self-titled debut without being transported to those heady late-eighties days of early alternative rock.

These nine tracks - all but one of which is sung in Spanish - hold their own without sounding one bit retro. Bodega Satellite's jangly, angular guitars stand proudly alongside any of today's indie rock elite. There are enough rough punky edges and shimmery pop hooks to satisfy the ears of the masses.

Hailing from Woodbridge, NJ, and centered around Puerto Rico native singer/guitarist Alberto Rios, Bodega Satellite forego Latin rhythms in favor of their indie/alternative guitar rock sound while maintaining Alberto's Hispanic-ness through lyrics alone. It's a winning combination which may well earn them the status of indie rock darlings in the hipster wasteland of New York City and beyond.
