Meet Bames: two Texans barely out of their teens, BBQing beat symphonies out of clattering percussion, drunken laser synths, and genuinely disrespectful levels of low-end whomp. DRTY BWTY is their beast of a debut EP, a six track mission statement as joyous as it is grimy. “Chrome Eagle” and “Ozone” prove that Bames can trap it out with the best of the best, yet the boys’ psychedelic bump is far funkier and headier than any of their hi-hat wielding contemporaries. What do you even call the space age twerk of “Fine Lines” and the title track? Half-time dance music? Freaked out hip-hop? Promethazine armadillo jams? Bames have twisted our minds and our asses into pretzels… now it’s your turn. Sleeve by Niv Bavarsky.
