Biblioteka Talk Their New Name, Debut EP and World Takeovers


Biblioteka was a last minute fix — in their current form at least, the band tells me over happy hour drinks at Cafe Pettirosso. Three fourths of Biblioteka, vocalist/bassist Mary Robins, guitarist Hector Rodriguez and drummer Chris Glaser, comprised three quarters of their previous band, CRITTÉ. And their close knit relationship shows — throughout the interview the band finished each others sentences and rattled off inside jokes one after another.

However, when CRITTÉ were weeks away from their debut album release, Rodriguez said that they had a falling out of sorts.

“We had to explain to everyone, ‘Oh yeah we have all these shows planned, we have an album release and now we barely have a band,’” Rodriguez recounted. “Thank god I got to talk to Jacque.”
