portraits: balam acab [+ “oh, why” mp3]

balam acab’s first lp is officially finished and in process, the full details have been unearthed, and we now get our first listen with “oh, why.” to mark the occasion, i met up with the reclusive sonic spelunker last week to snap some photos in the secluded woodlands of staten island.

in an interview with fact, alec koone stated, “I think the most important part of my music is the textural sampled stuff of just odd sounds found in the middle of field recordings and whatnot,” and this track shows just how much of a living touch something like falling rubble can add to a track. with balam’s tracks so distinctly flecked by nature and earth tones, it seemed the only possible setting for the photos would be alone in the intestines of mother nature. for maximum effect, press play and turn it up before proceeding any further:
