A fine new arrival has just landed in our office. It’s the pithily titled ‘Bitchitronics’ from Bitchin’ Bajas, which is the name of what happens when people from Cave and Mahjongg make some sloooow weed jams, and here the prolific trio are knocking out four more lengthy tracks of hypnotic tones. Opener ‘Transcendence’ sees slow burning synth and guitar shapes rubbing up against each other in mysterious ways before they delve into the hippie aether on ‘Inclusion’ where soft synths ebb gently against some breathy flute, sometimes with a load of feverish echo that makes it sound like some lost Sun Ra experiment. Maximum peace vibes going on here, but you’ll need a few stealthpipes in you to appreciate it properly.
Turn the platter over and you’ve got ‘Sun City’, the shortest of the four tracks, which is full of lovely healing synth drones wibbling beautifully away to themselves in a rather uplifting fashion before the lengthy ‘Turiya’ sees us off in a more mystical and restrained but similarly droney style, even bringing the flute back in towards the end. It’s sending me into a right old bong trance even in the entirely non-psychedelic environment of our office so lord knows what it’ll do to you at home. Total new age relaxo times. Highly recommended.
