Music for the body from Bitchin Bajas

This August is an un-typically heavy month of releases, so even more opportunity to overlook a release like Bitchin Bajas' self-titled new album on Drag City. As the 12 minute video below will relay far better than we can, Bitchin Bajas are about sonic jams that will make stuff happen to your body and mind.

In the notes, Drag City talk about "something delicate yet definite, gradually washing over your consciousness." - This new LP is a really stunning experience, hypnotic, empowering... music about feeling. Really top stuff, highly recommended.

The trip through ‘Bitchin Bajas’ took in all kinds of sonic terrain. When it was done, an additional mix was made, omitting the intense peaks of the album to create a ‘Relaxation Version’. This mix has been added to the cassette version only, making a double tape set.
