  Bitchin Bajas have been around the world in six 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, mapping and traversing their own ecosystem as they journey through scales and syntax in search of the aural epiphany, the true unknowing.
  Their most recent, Automaginary, is a collaboration of mythical proportions. The exploratory sonics of these two groups emerge from different, yet occasionally parallel paths to meld into a psychedelic, ambient and jazz-fried coalescence – yet their sum is equal to none of these things in particular, either, arriving on an astral plane unique and of its own. Automaginary consumes both minimalist and maximalist processes in order to reside in this space, and the two bands’ combined energy regularly emits a tranquil essence, providing a pure, untainted listening experience. Album highlight ‘Sign Spinners’ develops from an almost motorik heart-beat, with Joshua Abram’s low-end setting the tone. ‘Sign Spinners’ then moves airily along with chiming guitar, organ and bass clarinet shifting in and out, surrounding drums that propel the rhythms forward and then apart with sly, quicksilver hands.
