Bitchin Bajas share first track from new album, Bitchitronics.
Bitchin Bajas have announced a new album, Bitchitronics. Set to arrive July 16th via Drag City, the new album is the Chicago-based band’s first as a trio. The band has shared the album’s first single; listen to “Sun City” below.
From the press release:
For Bitchitronics, the concept was: use tape techniques to create and then solve problems – loops and edits were there to make things fun and the music great in the style of experimental tape pioneers upon whose shoulders the Bajas play. Recording was mostly done in, all over and around a house in Fennville, MI with three tape machines reeling in the sounds – sometimes, in addition to sounds that have never seen the light of day, you’re also hearing the sound of the light of day on the tape (or when they recorded at night, evening stars). Two 1/4″ tape machines were utilized to make loops and execute the Bitchitronics sound system, one of which discreetly captured the combined sounds of the loops with live playing. Once done, it was back to HQ where edits of the 1/4″ recordings were utilized to create larger tapestries on the 2-track master tape.
