about

"Creepy, beautiful, inspiring, and an interesting example of the kinds of uncommon influences that can work in heavy music today... Haunting, almost goth-ish post-rock... A deluge of heavy riffs and sweaty, groaned vocals... And though Reynolds is a New York metal star, the music on the record was written in a cabin on a lake in Maine."
–MetalSucks

"It's as though a housebound, pimply-faced dweeb with a rat moustache started writing music after absorbing INXS, Crowded House and Cure in between all the cool stuff that led to him making Roadrunner mix tapes and bootleg Earache shirts... Malice dominates the pumping industrial of 'Coward Song,' 'Ice' discordantly recalls early Jim (Foetus) Thirlwell and 'Cabin Song' is all razor-sharp elegy."
–Decibel

"Written completely by Reynolds, but with instruments played by Ryan Jones (Mutilation Rites), the endeavour combines industrial metal, post-rock and experimental drone in a Killing Joke-meets-Godflesh-meets-Swans kind of way — it's totally unexpected, yet works brilliantly. While Body Stuff's 2013 debut self-titled EP was an ode to NYC, new EP Body Stuff 2 was written at a lake house in Maine... Reynolds' dark, haunting vocals are highlighted throughout Body Stuff 2, showcasing intense emotions to complement the strange, brooding atmospheres that will linger in your mind even after it's over."
–Exclaim!

"Of all his work, Body Stuff might be the closest to Reynolds' heart. The solo project serves as a vessel for the NYC-based musician to indulge his various influences in the worlds of industrial, '80s pop, and post-punk. Composed in a house on a lake in Maine, Body Stuff 2 is a forthcoming EP from the project that brings to mind something legendary Long Island new wave-leaning radio station WLIR would have played in the late '80s."
–No Echo

"Decidedly New York... Rolling, dream pop... devolves into a sonic, post-metal pummeling that would fit right at home on a Swans record."
–PunkNews

"Nods to everyone from Billy Idol to Suicide."
–Ghettoblaster

"Ice-cold punk... Great for walking around in the winter."
–Gear Gods

"Harsh rhythms, dreamy melodies and dark, Michael Gira-esque vocals."
–Svbterranean

"Joyous experimental heavy rock music."
–Idioteq

Track Name: Ice
Friday night, I'm an arrow
Shot through a crowd
Assassin of something
No slowing down, no slowing down

This world is made of ice
Melting before our eyes
All we can do is fly
(Name in lights)

Ice.
Track Name: World of Men
High on a hill
We do what we will
We're a house of girls in a world of men

My sister and me
Wild and free
We're a house of girls in a world of men

They come and they go
But what do they know?
We're a house of girls in a world of men

A bird in a tree
I'll do what I please
I'll smile politely but what do I care about the words of men?
Track Name: Witness
Now I know what he meant when he said “fool's gold”
We fucking came and went and we got nothing to show

Now I know what he meant when he said “fool's gold”
Broke and sick and old, you reap what you sow

Now I know how she felt when she was waiting by the phone
Now I know how she felt when I said “baby, baby, let it go”

Compelled by crazy visions
I can't remember what I've done
I wish you were here because you were a witness
Without you, it will disappear
Disappear.
Track Name: Cabin Song
I stay up late
It's a choice I make
I'm so far away
But you know I'm awake
I stay up late

I stay up late
It's an attitude
I'm making plans
Of what to do
When I return
When I return I'll be ready for you
I stay up late

All alone, skin and bone, the night is my home
All alone, skin and bone, this life is my own.
Track Name: Coward Song
There was a violent crime before my time
I can't believe she's still alive
I sit in silence because I'm dead inside
Oh, what could I have done to make it right?
If only someone had shown me how to fight
Will you take this song instead of blood tonight?

There was a violent crime before my time
I can't believe she's still alive
I sit in silence because I'm dead inside
Oh, what could I have done to make it right?
If only someone had shown me how to fight
Will you take this song instead of blood tonight?
