Distorted Techno excursions. Opal Tapes figurehead Stephen Bishop has pushed a lot of boundaries with his label and his own music under the Basic House moniker since bursting onto the scene a few years back. The label in particular carved out a deep niche early and his momentum seemingly can't be stopped. "Caim in Bird Form" originally appeared as a very limited cassette on Digitalis earlier in 2013 and now finds its proper home on wax. This is Bishop in top form.
Basic House is never static, always burrowing toward the center of the Earth but missing by a few degrees. "Caim in Bird Form" is gritty, like the teeth of an ancient creature chewing its way through the rocks. Stilted beats crawl ahead on "I Found You," leaving tonal wreckage behind to be gobbled up by anyone watching, anyone who can hear. Each crack is another bone breaking, each stutter another crack in the ice.
Bishop ups the ante with the bleak futurism of "64 Bummer." Synths float skyward blacking out the sun underneath a veil of heavy bass. It's one of the album's masterstrokes, along with the caustic sonics of the title track. And then, just when the darkness gets out of hand, the circus comes to town in the form of "Ultra-Misted" to massage your ears, offering a hand in the night. "Caim in Bird Form" is undeniable proof that Basic House is one to watch.
