Body Language Streaming at NPR

Body Language, who find themselves at the top of our CMJ to-do list, are streaming their new record / EP Social Studies this week at NPR in anticipation of its release next week on Lavish Habits / OM Records. There are more than a few familiar touchpoints to their sound, including the tired blogger-cliches such as "indie dance-pop" and "reverb-soaked" but at their core Body Language are breaking new ground. Behind this solid collection of singles, the Brooklyn quartet have more in common with left field tour partners Keep Shelly in Athens and early Animal Collective, than they do with easy touchpoints such as Cults or Passion Pit. Stream the record now, and check them out at several CMJ shows. Dates after the jump.
