This spring will mark the Bitchin Bajas debut for Hands In The Dark with the 12″ EP Transporteur.
Here is a little intro if you are not familiar with the project 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.
On Transporteur, Bitchin Bajas show multiple faces, introducing 4 new songs showing as many different forms of the modern ambient genres, all perfectly produced and heavily loop-based for an utterly pleasant 34 minute journey in a timeless and spaceless zone. Then only shortly after the listener can open their eyes again and return to the harsh reality of their own life.
