Evolved from the mad scientist post-punk experiments of multi-instrumentalist and singer-songwriter Christopher Taylor, Philadelphia’s Body Meat now records and performs as a duo with the addition of drummer Matthew Anderegg (of Mothers and Infinity Dance Complex). The lineup change refocused the band’s sound–which reverently echoed the deconstructed rock antics of Palm–to embrace unhinged electronic pop.
Try and wrap your head around the disjointed flow of Body Meat’s auto-tuned electro-R&B single “MAKE UP” with just one listen. Its cool, bamboozling groove is unlike anything we’ve ever heard.
Body Meat’s most recent offering, “NAIROBI FLEX,” re-appropriates the punk energy of his past material to assemble a confounding new energy. Genres like footwork, sample-based hip-hop, and experimental music are folded into this massive, highly ambitious track. Watch the music video, directed by Daniel Brennan.
