Bitchin Bajas began in 2010 as a solo side project for Cooper Crain, guitarist of Chicago Krautrock revivalists Cave. The early sounds of Bitchin Bajas were equally psychedelic but decidedly less aggressive than Crain's primary band, opting for more textural exploration than rhythmic force. The project quickly became prolific in its release of music, starting with the Tones & Zones full-length in 2010 and trickling out split singles, EPs, cassette-only releases, and the like among more actualized full-lengths every year that followed. The next year, a self-titled double album materialized, seeing the band branch out into more sprawling fields of sound over its eight-song and almost 80-minute running time. Transporteur, a shorter LP on the French label Hands in the Dark, was released in 2015.
But make no mistake, Bitchin Bajas unearth enough splendor to tenfold justify their existence, bringing a unique, scholarly, economical slant to minimalist prog-drone, the gravitational pull of the perpetual bass yawn and tinkling synths sucking the oxygen out of everything in its path. Not to mention the DVD, a warm blanket of aqua that changes like the seasons and flushes out gorgeous color combinations and liquid melt. Next stop: Blu-ray? 01. Water 1 02. Water 2 03. Water 4 04.

Mostly instrumental, the album stands out for its brilliant balance of building grim monolithic structures and destabilizing them with creative detours. An Ethereal Oracle (Papa Slag, 2006 - Permanent, 2009) is a concept album in nine movements. 1 opens with a fake radio announcement addressing the survivors of a nuclear holocaust and then shifts into the streets where mobs of horribly injured people are screaming and dying.
