It's hard to believe it's still the same week as it was yesterday, but it is! And yesterday happened to be the most excellent release date of Bitchin' Bajas' self-titled opus. Often flying under the radar of their own volition, it's become increasingly clear the Bajas can't be anyone's best kept secret for long, and Bitchin Bajas is the reason. Over 70 minutes of slow moving acoustics, electronics, and tape machinery, with string arrangements and field recordings fleshing the bone, Bitchin Bajas changes your mood, and your body temperature. The sonics are delicate yet definite, like a guided sub-aquatic submersion. Bitchin Bajas is climate-controlled comprehension - on one hand, an ultimate album, and on the other, barely an album at all. Yes, it's been released on double-LP and double-cassette (the 2nd cassette an even mellower, exclusive relaxation mix of the album), and now it's available digitally in a special edition, with analog video accompaniment for all 8 tracks (courtesy of Nick Ciontea from Brownshoesonly), only from our site. To celebrate, we present a Bitchin Bajas preview video, also made by Nick. Bajas-mania is creeping and growing - catch them on tour this week, and in Europe later this fall!
