Show Me The Body Dog Whistle Limited Vinyl LP

Overview:

SHOW ME THE BODY was formed in New York City in 2009. The band spent several years playing clubs and bars. None of their friends could attend the shows due to age restrictions. Eventually SMTB penetrated the all ages DIY and punk scenes in NY and the northeast. They released Yellow Kidney on thier own and their SMTB EP with the Letter Racer Collective. After signing with Loma Vista and releasing their debut album “Body War”, SMTB began touring the US and Europe. Upon returning home from a year and half of touring the band began a collaborative mixtape project called “Corpus 1” which marked the conception of a community effort spearheaded by SMTB known as Corpus. The mixtape featured a broad range of artists and friends (Denzel Curry, Dreamcrusher, Eartheater, TrippJones, etc) who SMTB felt were comrades and innovators. At the same time SMTB collaborated with Elijah Maura to create the first Corpus zine, containing poetry and photographs documenting Corpus mixtape colaborators, as well as the underground New York youth scene at large. In 2018, Corpus released Corpus TV, an 8 episode series featuring skits and short films, some directed by Show Me the Body others by Corpus affiliates. Also in 2018, SMTB recorded, produced, and released three Corpus projects; “Machine Smoke” by TRIPPJONES, “Grudge2” by Dreamcrusher; featuring Alice Glass, and “Enemy” by Dog Breath. Amidst working on these projects SMTB recorded a two song Ep called “Challenge Coin” at Electric Lady Studios, not far from where the band formed. Now, the band has returned with a new album called “Dog Whistle”. It is the bands sophomore record and strongest project to date. It was produced by Chris Coady, Show Me The Body, and Gabriel Millman (original drummer and current in-house producer). Dog Whistle was written in Long Island City, Queens and recorded in Los Angeles, California in the summer of 2018.

This album is for those who are no longer with us. It is about coping with the loss of friends, family, and mentors, while building a new community in their wake. “When i meet someone that’s good i want to die with them, dead friends i still want to say good bye to them.” In the midst of losing friends we strive to create a stronger community, dedicated to fight, survive, and thrive in their memory and spirit. This album and our music does not belong to a political party. No authority, political movement, or side may claim the function of our music in this society. This album is personal. It is about and for the disenfranchised youth of this city, of this country, and of this earth. It is for our community and anyone who may find shelter within it.
