Forget what came before. The Miami Dolphins are a band, Becky‘s a record. The Miami Dolphins have been bringing it to the lucky people of Minneapolis since 2011, and now they’re gonna bring it to you too! A lovely tangle of 13 epic fits that speak and squeak, and yeah maybe just maybe creak a little.
Becky is a slurry of bright no-wave cheer and jeer. There’s levity and brevity, girth, slime, and even moments of pure pop splendor spilling out of the frenetic, blistering 28-minute burner.
Becky is now available on LP, CD and digital.

Terms like “angular avant-punk” and “spazz-rock” drunkenly dance around reviews while other confused music aficionados liken the group to the Minutemen, Wire, Dog Faced Hermans, Fantomas, Le Tigre or a kindergarten class on a sugar high.
No-wave noise might be the pallete that the Dolphins draw from, but this time out the band has embraced the barbed, satirical pop that they’ve shown traces of in the past on songs like “Pucker Upper.”
