BAMBARA
“Seeing a Bambara set live is sorta like getting trapped in a long, dark corridor with the vague sensation that you are being followed by the thing that terrifies you most … so long as what you’re scared of is experimental indie bands with a tendency to be mellow very loudly.” – Weekly Dig Boston
Junk Boys
Is blues the music of the Devil? The minor third note interval that’s the basic ingredient of anything bluesy is famous for conveying a sad feeling, not evil, but – at least according to Wikipedia – “the word [blues] may have come from the term blue devils,” and “depending on the religious community a musician belonged to, it was more or less considered as a sin to play this low-down music.” W guess that simple fact made the genre very attractive to young rebels… who ended up moving to the more liberal US coasts…
Brooklyn’s Junk Boys, an obscure band we stumbled upon almost randomly, seems to accept and even promote this notion. Their debut single “Call On Me” (streaming) features a devilish cover art, and an apocaliptic sound at least in part reminiscent of a hammondless and heavier version of The Doors, another band that enjoyed blue references to Beelzebub.-The Deli
Ritual Humor
Celeste Carballo, Mathew Petronelli, & James Stuart.
