Bambara @ Palisades

February 25, 2016

Guest Reviewer: Erik The Red

Bambara is a noise post-punk group from Brooklyn by way of Athens.  While their music conjures up bands like Swans, Place To Bury Strangers, Liars and Jesus Lizard, Bambara has created something new and unique.  The trio has lived, rehearsed and recorded together in a Bushwick basement studio since 2011, forging a bond that has certainly benefited their live show.  The trio played a blistering seven-song set at an album-release show at Palisades.  The set consisted mostly of new material from their upcoming LP, Swarm.  If this performance was any indication, we are looking at a breakthrough album.

Katie Von Schleicher @ Palisades

February 18, 2016

Brooklyn's own Katie Von Schleicher took the stage at Palisades on Thursday night. Joined by her live band, she showcased her ability to make beautiful noise. Bleaksploitation, her latest doom pop EP, is slowly gaining attention. It got mine a couple months ago when I saw her at Alphaville & became a fan.
