Show Me the Body: Jewish New Yorkers who make a hybrid of hip-hop and punk and aren't the Beastie Boys

Show Me the Body is the sort of band you'd probably manage to see live every month, if you were trapped in a certain Brooklyn bubble, except they're from Queens. "Bone Soup Outta You" suggests that they're doomed to one poor recording job after another (see their first release, Yellow Kidney), but they've got an original little mish-mash of hip-hop and sludge going. And there's a banjo.

SMTB gets released April 21 via Letter Racer. No doubt, this project won't last more than five years, but everybody gets to be twenty at some point.
