- See Birds by Balam Acab
8/10 Li'l Biz Staff review, 19 August 2010
Man this is some deep stuff, Balam Acab are a strange and mysterious entity. This EP is out on emerging Brooklyn-based label Tri Angle so they might be New Yorkers but I couldn't say for sure. What I do know is that this is some seriously spaced out, dub inspired jammage. Musically it sits somewhere between dubstep and drone whilst touching on some of the ideas presented by chillwave, glow-fi and all that bizzle. On first listen it reminds me of High Places due to it's blatant dub/reggae influence merging with the atmospherics of ambient synth pop yet 'See Birds' takes it to a whole new level. The vocals are drifting echoes, beats are reverb heavy but present and tranquil, ghostly synths and electronics provide texture and support the ambience of the vocal delivery and yet I'd still consider this dance music, slow dance music but dance music never the less. It's fun in a bonged out of your mind kinda way and will most certainly intrigue those of you interested in the further developments of this emerging ambient pop sound we are hearing so much of recently. Real tasteful stuff.
