Bodega Satellite is an independent rock band from Woodbridge, New Jersey. They began life as Vulgarsund after the demise of guitarist/singer Alberto Rios and drummer Kevin Poznanski’s previous group. Concentrating on Puerto Rican native Alberto’s songs (largely written in Spanish), the band went through a succession of bass players before welcoming Christopher Rousseau into the fold in October 2010. Soon after, they became Bodega Satellite, and began writing new material while still keeping the Vulgarsund songs in their repertoire. Influenced by, and drawing comparisons to, The Pixies, early Weezer, and Nirvana, the dynamic power trio has a unique indie rock sound sprinkled with a Latin flavor.
In July 2011, the band is set to release their self-titled debut album. From the brisk and upbeat instrumental opener Pre (which acts as an intro to the hard-hitting Señor), the more moderately paced Al Fin (which has a slight vaudevillian feel), to The Thermals inspired Sangre and the Pixie-ish tunes Animalistic Sounds of Purity (the album’s lone English number) and frantic closer Abracadavre, the CD has something to please everyone.
Possessing an undeniable live energy, the band is currently booking gigs throughout the year in support of the album. They are also planning a trip to Puerto Rico next summer, where the upbeat and poppy Abrazame (which features the cuatro, a Puerto Rican instrument) is already receiving airplay
