Tamara Jafar and Joe Durniak, also known as Brooklyn-based band Cultfever released their self-titled and self-produced album last year to critical praise. “Strangenecks” is one of the singles off the album and it recently appeared on an episode of MTV’s Awkward which brought the band to greater national attention. Buzzing along, the track clocks in at a about 2:51 but it’s an incredibly layered song slightly reminiscent of Garbage’s first two efforts but perhaps with infectiously catchy hooks. 

The band will be playing a couple of CMJ Festival sets – an afternoon set at Piano’s on 10/16, an evening set at Littlefield on the 16; an afternoon set at Webster Hall on 10/17; the Deli Magazine Showcase at the Delancey on 10/18; and a 10/20 set at the Living Room.
