Boomkat Product Review:
Hot on the heels of last year's Sun Ra tribute "Switched On Ra", "Bajascillators" is a psychedelic synth-rich set from the Chicago trio that's lodged between early Stereolab and Laurie Spiegel.
Cooper Crain, Rob Frye and Daniel Quinlivan are back on the synth tip again with "Bajacillators", a squelchy four tracker that diverts the well-kneaded kraut-inspired electronics of 2017's "Bajas Fresh" into wider spaces. Opening track 'Amorpha' is an immediate stand-out, created in part using Laurie Spiegel's Music Mouse software, an algorithmic compositional program she initially released in 1986 and has been updating ever since. The track's clusters of tuned percussion sounds like Steve Reich via "TNT"-era Tortoise, but also harmonizes with Spiegel's own legendary "The Expanding Universe" set, all new age syrup and labyrinthine tone-rhythm interplay.
'Geomancy' is comparatively downtrodden next to its predecessor's brightness, sounding like an electronic toy gasping for power as its 9V battery coughs its way to the knacker's yard. But on the flipside the trio find the sun once again, glancing chipper jazz with 'World B. Free', reminding us of early Stereolab with 'Quakenbrück' and its eruption into motorik bliss in its central act. Good stuff.
