BITCHIN BAJAS (us, Drag City)
"started in 2010 as solo side project for Cooper Crain, guitarist of Chicago Krautrock heroes CAVE. Since then, Dan Quinlivan and Rob Frye joined the band and Bitchin Bajas have got the public attention thanks to a perfect, extensive discography on quality record labels such as Bathetic, Permanent and Drag City. The trio play warm, instrumental, psychedelic and melodic ambient music, mixing minimal 60/70’s electronic with original acoustic elements: flute, saxophone, xylophone, woodwinds to name only a few."
DSR LINES (be, Ultra Eczema)
"David Edren, who co-runs the label Hare Akedod, lays out some liquifying modular synth stunners like an audible acupuncture session. Delicate and precise penetrations giving way to a rush of foamy euphoria, enveloping it into delicate sequenced melodies or vast synthesizer vistas. It is like viewing electronic music under a microscope and discovering amazing patterns. Edren keeps his sounds tactly understated and instead of going for a full-blown Berlin school analog synth monument, he explores the scientific (and sci-fi) aesthetics with delicacy and restrain."
