More Info

The Bit is the second recorded collaboration between Aidan Baker (Nadja / Hypnodrone Ensemble), Simon Goff (Jhann Johannsson / Hildur Gudnadottir) and Thor Harris (Swans, Shearwater, Thor & Friends).

Following on from 2017s Noplace album, The Bit treads a similar path in terms of the recording process as the trio spent a day improvising at Voxton Studios in Berlin whilst on a European tour. The result was then edited and moulded into six hypnotic tracks that ebb and flow with beauty and ease.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

The Bit finds the trio painting with a lighter touch than on its predecessor. Thor Harris motorik beats still underpin the music but the atmospherics take a more prominent role and there is a pure and cohesive path to be found throughout the record. Much like on Noplace, Bakers guitar and Goffs violin weave together beautifully, forming a deep bed of melody, ambience and reverb.

Given the trios credentials its not surprising they have created another immersive and stunning record.
