Bitchin Bajas prepare organic, non-GMO new record Bajas Fresh for Drag City, share new, cage-free single "Circles on Circles"
Fairly traded, free-ranging bajas.

Summer may be coming to a close, but that just means that the sweet, fragrant prime time of fall farmers markets is upon us. Maybe you’ll grab some cold-pressed cider? Oh, it smells so nice! And look, over there are some seasonal squashes! NYT Cooking says you can cook those in over 30 different ways! (THIRTY!) And, hey what’s this curious item hiding behind the tasty kohlrabi at the Drag City booth??? Why, it’s a budding new record from Chicago’s very own Bitchin Bajas! And it sounds like it’ll be ripe for the picking on November 17.

Bajas Fresh will be the analog improvisers’ first proper album in more than three years, so it’s okay if you don’t remember that we liked their last one a lot. Following a medley of collaborative projects with some of the midwest’s other favorite experimentalists — Will Oldham and The Natural Information Society to name a few — the new record will continue the band’s reputation of creating continuous, spooling records of unique, farm-to-table sound and ambiance. (ALLERGY WARNING: although it will feature no animal or gluten products, Bajas Fresh DOES CONTAIN percussion and a horn section.)

You can preorder the album now, and over there next to the samples of Amish cheeses, you can find a tasty first listen to the new track “Circles On Circles.” It’s a gorgeous, healthy serving of new music that shows the band’s ecosystem of textures and feelings hasn’t wilted one bit.

Oh, but wait…before you click “play”…are you sure these arpeggios are all grass-fed?
