Jay you Ice

Heavy beadroom-fi



This album is an absolute testament that the sounds of a song can be much more important than the words. Sometimes sounds evoke a deeper emotion that sometimes words just fall short. This album is an experience, and an adventure to listen to. It could very well change the way you perceive music. It is pretty and even at times scary. A must listen.



This entire album is beautiful, the bass in it is amazing and it sounds so natural at points in the song that you feel as if you're actually under water. I played "Expect" in a car full of middle school girls and they all seemed to go into this quiet trance for the length of the song; a wonderful break from their incessant talk of middle school drama. Five stars.

About Balam Acab

The project of Ithaca, New York’s Alec Koone, Balam Acab -- named after a Mayan demigod who created rainbows by piercing clouds with arrows -- began as an experimental noise project while he was still a Pennsylvania high-school student. He resuscitated the name a few years later as a music student at Ithaca College, incorporating dubstep, U.K. bass, and R&B elements into his atmospheric sounds, drawing comparisons to Grouper as well as drag/witch house artists such as Salem and White Ring. Balam Acab's critically acclaimed debut EP, See Birds, was released in 2010 by the Tri Angle imprint. The EP was reissued early in the following year, while Koone's debut album, Wander/Wonder, arrived in September 2011. ~ Heather Phares
