"Do the Duvet" by Naked Roommate
Leftfield dance punk from Berkeley sounds good during lockdown, but could be just as good when we can go out dancing.
Do the Duvet (2020)
Trouble in Mind Records
If the cover photography is any suggestion, this is the perfect album for daily routines at home, dancing in the club, creating art, or simply slipping between the sheets (with or without a loved one).
Conceived by Amber Sermeńo (lead vocals) and Andy Jordan (drum programming, synths, percussion, backing vocals), Naked Roommate is off-kilter dance punk from Berkeley that hits all the right notes. Running a little over a half hour, Do the Duvet never gets boring, exploring sinewy E.S.G. basslines (“We Are the Babies”), chiptunes-style lofi (“Fondu Guru”), and stripped down poetry sung-spoken to bass and horns reminiscent of Kleenex/LiLiPUT (“Credit Union).
