Bent Shapes – “Behead Yrself, Pt. 2”

Bent Shapes - Feels Weird

The debut full-length by Boston indie pop trio Bent Shapes is finally out this summer. The group started playing in 2009 under the name Girlfriends, and have released a steady stream of 7-inches and tapes over the years, embracing the art of handmade and small-run releases, some of which have been released on the band’s own imprint Cake Time (also the name of a zine published by singer Ben Potrykus). A few of my personal favorites have included the band’s first scrappy garage punk cassette, 2010’s post-punk 7-inch “Gov’t Seizure,” the 2011 “Cave Kids” single, last year’s “Boys to Men” b/w “Brat Poison” flexi (yes, a flexi-disc) and most recently, the “Panel of Experts” b/w “Bites and Scratches” 7-inch. For those familiar with their discography, the Bent Shapes debut Feels Weird (out August 20th via Father/Daughter Records) almost serves as a best-of compilation of sorts, with newly recorded versions of previously released songs, plus a handful of brand new tracks. For those unfamiliar, it’s an essential no-filler record with some of the best indie pop songwriting you’ll hear all year. Stream the first single “Behead Yrself, Pt. 2″ below.
