First release on Tri Angle, now repressed on CD -- originally released in August 2010 on 12" vinyl that sold-out immediately. Balam Acab's See Birds EP presents an optimistic yet haunting glimpse of a droning future. See Birds is the product of 19 year-old Ithaca, New York resident and solo producer, Alec Koone. "He isolates and distorts bits of source material (say, vocal loops or beat fragments) and smears them together in new arrangements. The results are remarkably seamless. Take opener 'See Birds (Moon)', where a scratchy drone meets heavy, blown-out beats and a chorus of layered vocals. The way he puts them together, a new natural rhythm for these sounds emerges and it becomes hard to imagine them in any other order... a heck of an impressive first step." --Pitchfork (8.0)
