The three members of Bambara — twin brothers Reid and Blaze Bateh, and childhood friend William Brookshire — have been making music together since the seventh grade, which probably explains how the noise punks’ clobbering sound and art-grime aesthetic could already be so fully formed. DREAMVIOLENCE, the proper full-length follow-up to 2010’s debut EP, Dog Ear Days, arrives on April 30 (through the trio’s own Emerald Weapon Records label), and the 13-track collection manages to contain Bambara’s stormy thrashing — all hollowed-out vocals, fits of distortion, and a rusty seesaw rhythm section — while leaving room for the Brooklyn-by-way-of-Athens, Georgia unit to rage so freely.
