Bangladeafy: The Briefcase

The New York duo known as Bangladeafy have a new EP out to tickle your musical senses with, titled The Briefcase. Comprised of Jonny Germ (bass/vocals/keys) and Atif Haq (drums), they present this 6 track release which is made up of quirky, complex little ditties that are mostly filled with wild drum & bass improvisations, though there are some keyboards thrown in from time to time. Both are great players, and the synergy between them is quite remarkable at times, the two popping and rumbling on the jazzy/proggy/punky "Tubes" or laying down some intense, intricate jazz-metal on "Dumpster Fire" and "Elixir". As impressive as the playing is here, they guys are not quite there yet compositionally speaking, as much of The Briefcase comes across as 'look what I can do' noodling, even as good as that noodling it. I think if they ever decide to make a real band out of this (the wonders they could do with a guitarist, sax player, and full time keyboard player) and really try and flesh their talent out and create actual songs, there's no telling what they might come up with.
