Show Me The Body

smtb

New York, US

hardcore * punk * noise * hip hop

Newyorský hc punkový živel Show Me The Body jde napříč žánry a servíruje eklektický hardcore obohacený o další vlivy, od hip hopu přes noise až po sludge metal, slyšet je třeba i banjo. Kapela kolem sebe soustřeďuje inkluzivně zaměřený kolektiv podobně smýšlejících umělců a umělkyň nazvaný Corpus, z nějž vzešel eponymní kolaborativní mixtape Corpus I. Společně se SMTB se něm objevily jména jako Eartheater, Dreamcrusher, Denzel Curry, Moor Mother, Princess Nokia nebo Negashi Armada. SMTB absolvovali turné například s Code Orange, King Krule nebo HEALTH a Daughters. Po debutu 'Body War' z roku 2016 vydali loni u Loma Vista Recordings své druhé LP Dog Whistle, jehož tíživou klaustrofobní atmosféru plnou sarkasmu přijedou představit i na Fluff.

Show Me The Body's sound is heavily influenced, both sonically and in attitude, by the city that reared them: New York. The band has been at the forefront of the city's underground since the release of their 2014 EP Yellow Kidney. Over the ensuing years Show Me The Body established themselves as one of the most exciting bands in the city, through their torrid live show and distinctive sonics. Dog Whistle, SMTB's most immediate and critically acclaimed body of work to date, is heavy yet honest. The album was produced by Chris Coady, SMTB and Gabriel Millman (original drummer and current in-houseproducer). Dog Whistle was written in Long Island City, Queens and recorded in Los Angeles, California in the summer of 2018. "Dog Whistle is a call-to-arms directed at the community, its sonic urgency reflecting the mounting challenges of surviving in the city," writes The FADER. The album was released on March 29th, 2019 and follows Show Me The Body's debut album Body War. Show Me The Body has spent the last several years building and elevating a community of like minded artists and creative collaborators called Corpus. The first Corpus release was an eponymous mixtape featuring Denzel Curry, Princess Nokia, Eartheater, Moor Mother, and more. Corpus has also released projects from Trippjones, Dreamcrusher, and Dog Breath. More recently, Show Me The Body toured with Code Orange, King Krule, HEALTH and Daughters.
