Accurately described by NPR as a “beautiful dynamic nightmare” and “lumbering western noir”, the Brooklyn-based BAMBARA boasts damaged and dark noise/punk with a Western slant. Their pummeling and unpredictable live set has made them one of New York City’s most sought after acts — having impressed noise-pop auteur Angus Andrew to the extent that he asked brothers Reid and Blaze Bateh to join Liars as members on 2017’s worldwide tour. Additionally, BAMBARA has toured the US and Europe extensively alongside the likes of Metz, Girl Band, APTBS, Algiers and more. Now embarking on their own national headlining tour, it’s finally our time to reap the glory of a true BAMBARA show.
Last Fall, GANSER’s This Feels Like Living saw the band exploring new edges of their post-punk roots. Keeping their ambivert energy, they began investigating more angular territory and riotously released their debut album, Odd Talk (No Trend Records), with us in April. Occasionally leaving earlier synth elements behind completely, with no wave touches joining their original influences like Sad Lovers and Giants, Gary Numan, and others, the four piece noise behemoth has been tumbling onward gaining impressive features in Pitchfork, Spin, AV Club, Billboard, Post-Punk and countless other publications. Always a got dam pleasure, we're elated to welcome back GANSER.
