Product Notes

Swarm has taken a long and arduous journey to reach it's current form. It was almost entirely recorded in early 2014, then entirely scrapped after a laptop containing the sessions was stolen. Realizing they needed to take a break from those songs, the band made an EP called Night Chimes, which much like Reid's solo project, Feverer, stitched together noise improvisations into a coherent, composed whole. When they revisited the lost songs for Swarm, they entered the studio with Ben Greenberg (Uniform, ex-Â-The Men) with renewed purpose and laid down the majority of the tracks on the album in two days. Despite the band's Southern roots, Swarm is strongly informed by the band's gritty Brooklyn digs. Reid's vignettes describe a grimy city, filled with fragmented images of unhinged, unstable characters - including one inspired by the landmark Polish short story collection, "The Street of Crocodiles" by Bruno Schulz. The music perfectly complements the bleak atmosphere of the lyrics, with Reid's Rowland S. Howard Â-like guitar lines taking the foreground more than in past Bambara releases, and the pulsing rhythm section driving the songs to ever more depraved depths.
