Album artwork for Naked Roommate's Do the Duvet

Naked Roommate | Mad Love

Post-punk from Oakland, California on the blog today. The four-piece began as a side-project for Amber Sermeńo & Andy Jordan of a then-active band The World. They were later joined by two other Oakland musicians Michael Zamora and Alejandra Alcala to become a full-fledged project.

The band released their delightfully titled Do the Duvet last September.

Do The Duvet proffers leftfield hijinks via punk execution, answering all the questions posed by questionable post-punk revivalism with sour lemon sneering and cherry-sweet smiles. It’s a fever dream, really…A flailing, sparking wire of hyper-compressed rhythms (breathing and synthetic), devolved guitar work and minced electronic compost. The resultant congealed groove is suitable for club situations and/or living space pulsations alike. Either way, the landlord is pissed.
