Local Band Body Language Plays Irving Plaza Tonight, Giving Excuse to Listen to Their Near-Perfect Song “Tempoture”

As we, the Animal Collective-loving indie nation, hunker down until the arrival of their next release, we look towards local tropical tinkerers Body Language to appease the wait. Or, at least we should. Last year, in an interview with Spinner, the Bed Stuy-based clan classified their music as “electrotropicalidiscodancingfun,” and while this fall’s Social Studies EP makes good on the promise of maxed-out bass and disco, the tracks “Tempoture” and “Seeds of Sight” completely indulge the exotic, otherworldly cravings that AnCo fulfill. The real trick, though, is how they exercise enough restraint so neither becomes muddled with too many moving parts or a ripoff of their forebears. Listen for yourself below.

Perfect timing too, as they play Irving Plaza tonight opening for Teddybears (remember Teddybears?) before releasing a deluxe version of their EP on October 18 via Lavish Habits/OM Records.
