BITCHIN BAJAS ANNOUNCE SELF TITLED DOUBLE LP
RELEASED ON DRAG CITY IN THE UK/EU 25TH AUGUST

…and at the heart of Bitchin Bajas, there is pure peace.

Bitchin Bajas have been around the world in five years; chasing sonics through space and time and drawing a lot of conclusions along their discographical path. Always, they push forward, recklessly consuming processes in order to realise their own works—but the sound and the music regularly emerges with tranquil essence, bringing them and their listeners into a shared experience.

Bitchin Bajas’ output has been remarkably diverse in search of this singular goal, which makes for great listening across multiple releases and with the release of this new double-LP, they have mapped and traversed their own ecosystem as they journey in search of the aural epiphany, the true unknowing.

With plenty of room stretched over four sides, Bitchin Bajas use their many methods to attain perfect flow throughout the 76 minutes of this self-titled record. Self-titled because this is who they are at their core; these are the flares and oscillations of their soul. They will be other things again, horizons will continue to rise and fade away in their path as they continue forward and upward—but this self-titled record is a pure vision at the heart of Bitchin Bajas.

Acoustic is the beginning. Eastern tonalities relocate Bitchin Bajas farther inside the source, finding the timeless point from long ago and slowly sliding via fader until then is now, until acoustic goes analog. Something pure and natural is happening—within the sound, within the songs; in the album and in you. The shifts that come have the potential to make changes in your moods and your body temperature. Something delicate yet definite, gradually washing over your consciousness. Electricity just comes, it doesn’t even begin. Bitchin Bajas is climate-controlled comprehension—on one hand, an ultimate album, and on the other, barely even an album at all.

What began in randomness, pitch-shifting and tape manipulation emerged in the cutting as a single direction, a journey in scales, divided by the format perfectly into four stages, eight discreet parts. Bitchin Bajas reach high and low in their consciousness as expressed through equalisation to see (hear) what affect it will have on them—and what it does to them, reaches through to the listener too.

The space found on Bitchin Bajas was located with organ, synthesizer, winds, xylophone and autoharp, employing a 1″ 8-track tape machine to the fullest extent. Additional contributions from strings, keys, guitar and field recordings helped make Bitchin Bajas everything that it is.
