Bambara

A shot of pure dark stuff from this Brooklyn trio, who started in Athens, Georgia and brought all that Southern Gothic creepiness into their pitch black noise rock. Based around the twin brothers of Reid and Blaze Bateh (also the backing band for the most recent Liars tour), on three albums Bambara have created a pulverising mix of twisted garage rock, mutant rockabilly and perverse storytelling, like Health, the Birthday Party and Swans playing a dive bar in a David Lynch film. And they do a mean Kate Bush cover.
