“The Briefcase is a well dressed business man with a shady work ethic and a violent temper walking down the street (think American Psycho level) while you, unfortunate listener, are a well meaning but down on your luck homeless panhandler. “Excuse me mister but, would you happen to be able to spare some cha…” and the sound of BANGLADEAFY’s Briefcase connecting with the bottom of your open jaw, slamming it shut and splintering your front teeth into an unknown number of pieces replaces the rest of your meager request. Holy shit, right? Yeah. Holy shit indeed.” – Crown of Viserys
“The New York bass-and-drum duo’s new six song EP, The Briefcase, is a genre bending tour de force. What’s in the aforementioned briefcase, you might ask? Why, just some of the most jarring and ridiculous tunes you’ll hear this year of course. Each track flows into one another, making for a seamless barrage of whimsical psychosis. The drumming is completely off-the-wall and tight while the bass performance is just as mind-boggling. BANGLADEAFY can roll out cycling, funk-laden grooves one moment and jump flawlessly into rhythmically bastardizing dissonant, math rock riffing the next. BANGLADEAFY are definitely in a league all their own.” – American Aftermath
“This drum and bass duo play just that, drums and bass (with occasional vocals, and some addition flairs thrown in as well) in a very aggressive and somewhat spastic way and yet never once did I feel bored. Maybe you can blame that on the fact that this release is six songs long and only the closer, “Pest Control”, tops three minutes. It’s a lesson in frenetic songwriting because these two guys take what is essentially some of my favorite ideas and do them. This was an absolute treat and is definitely one of my favorite EPs to drop this year. It’s awesome, not much more I can say besides that.” – Don’t Count On It
“The Briefcase sees BANGLADEAFY make use of an array of instrumentation and effects, including old-time piano on ‘Tubes,’ and at the start of the track ‘Show Me The Gold’ there is a sample of a bee swarm or a fly swarm, and a sample that sounds like it is from a Western with that pan-flute sounding noise you hear in cowboy movies. The heavy synth intro to the final track ‘Pest Control’ is pretty interesting. This track also features a pogo-sounding effect at the beginning before what sounds like an 8-bit crowd cheer, and then some organ sounding bits that keeps it all very surprising and interesting then finishes off very dramatically with a piano solo amid some creepy synth. Indeed the whole album is fucking creepy […] The collection clocks in at a brief 14.8 minutes, yet The Briefcase packs in more ideas than the usual human might have across several hours in a day.” – Sardless
