Another week in music, another success story of the New York City rock scene. Brothers Reid and Blaze Bateh, along with bassist William Brookshire, return with the third LP as Bambara: Shadow On Everything. To give them any sort of true genre-specific description would be impossible but imagine a white-hot fusion of Sisterworld era Liars and A Place To Bury Strangers and we’re somewhere near enough.

Shadow On Everything is an experimentally dark, frenzied 12-track rocket up the arse; a bass and impossibly tight drumming section scoring Reid’s barely ever discernible psychedelic howls.

The kinship to NYC compatriot vets The Men is there in abundance. Likewise, the conceptual nature of Shadow On Everything also twins Bambara with the likes of Detroit’s favourite storyteller's Protomartyr. Mind you, the psycho-gothic concepts on display here also give rise to the idea that Bambara make a very good American version of Brighton’s former biggest psychobilly’s The Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster. All said, Bambara are a band entirely of their own though, of that have no doubt.

It’s a yes from me.

Dark. Broody. Strong. Hints at naughtiness…And I’m not talking about my coffee. This is an album that demands your attention and I am 100% focused. It’s so atmospheric I feel like the walls are closing in. Not in a bad way. If that’s at all possible. It soothes yet destroys. Visceral in all its glory.
