Album Review: Bambara – Stray

Posted on 25 Feb 2020 at 8:12am

Noted Southern gothic author Flannery O’Connor once wrote: ‘Later he saw Jesus move from tree to tree in the back of his mind, a wild ragged figure motioning him to turn around and come off into the dark.’ It seems that this spectre has haunted Bambara, a three-piece who’ve moved from Georgia to Brooklyn in an effort to rouse themselves from the Peach State’s heavy-lidded ways.

Appropriately, singer Reid Bateh – his sibling Blaze plays the drums whilst William Brookshire plays bass – has laid out Stray as if it were some darkly ritualistic novel, the contents each served up like chapters. Augmented by a cabal of friends picking up extra homework on trumpet, strings and backing vocals, it’s a record inspired by O’Connor but created by Reid’s obsessive narrative weaving, the source of inspiration being a collection of stranger’s photographs bought at a thrift store.
