Bluffing

Brooklyn duo BLUFFING (who are four-piece live with two members of The Gradients) are set to release their debut, Sugar Coated Pills of Wisdom, on March 25 via PaperCup Music. It was recorded at Silent Barn's studio and engineered by Scott Andrews, who has worked with other likeminded local bands Sweet Bulbs and their offshoots, Butter the Children, and Heaven's Gate. The record's full of the sort of guitar-oriented lo-fi pop that dominated much of indie rock's early days, as you can hear for yourself on the new single, "Mind/Mood." The track makes its premiere in this post and you can stream it below.

BLUFFING play locally a good deal and they have a few more upcoming local shows scheduled, including Cake Shop on February 9 with Big Neck Police Greece's Acrid Fluff, Rabbit Rabbit and Adventures of the Silver Spaceman; and The Living Gallery on February 20.

Haircut 100 has nothing on them, except better haircuts.

no one would be this negative about the band if it weren't for the stills from that godawful photoshoot. i'll bet they are regretting that one.

"no one would be this negative about the band if it weren't for the stills from that godawful photoshoot"

Even if the photoshoot was amazing and not godawful, those are some pretty bad haircuts. Look at me! I have a shitty haircut! I thought hipsters were no longer being ironic. So 2004.

why fucking bother recording this shit?

Posted by Anonymous | January 23, 2014 3:40 PM

Seriously how much effort did this take? The song structure, the melody, the lyrics are all complete hack jobs.

I imagine one of the reasons people cling to their hates so stubbornly is because they sense, once hate is gone, they will be forced to deal with pain.

^ or, this band.
