New Ada Babar LP Available for Streaming & Purchase

Uncompromising in its ability to clash yet sound fabulous, Ada Babar's Leaked is an imagistic mesh of warped, labyrinthine rhythms, canned sound effects, and heady bedroom production. The intricacies and folds within any particular song on the album are plentiful; each track a tightly wound spring. However, if someone listened closely, they could locate a seat in the center of the action. There’s something peaceful about Babar’s vision, even when hurtling past at a high speed - like a tiny astrologer living inside a hard drive, placidly gazing up into a stream of luminescent data whirring off into the night sky. - Josh Kelly

New Track: "Cassette Jam One" - NAH x Ada Babar

Experimental sound sculptors Ada Babar recently popped up on our radar, dropping their split release, Nino Tomorrow (Favourite Tapes), last month with Palm frontman Kasra Kurt. Well, Babar are already back, appearing on another "wild ass" collaborative project with boundary-pushing Philly music brethren NAH, a.k.a. Mike Kuhns/Michul Kuun. Setting up a lot of midi equipment, "we went nutz on the jam session." And what they ended up laying down is an expansive ten-minute track that they've titled "Cassette Jam One," which is now available via Ranch Records. Kuhns also surprised us last week with another random EP Necessary Moods Vol. 1 that you can "pay what you want" and download HERE.

New Ada Babar & Kasra Kurt Split Available for Streaming & Purchase

Certain aesthetics may survive from one generation to the next, but in the process often undergo a metamorphosis as a culture’s approach toward making music changes. We have become gifted multi-taskers - all the different roles we have to take on to make a living wage, attention spans doled out between phones and friends, apps running side by side, our browsers buried deep in open tabs. Our ability as time-shifters to bounce through multiple worlds at a given moment, to pick up and pause a multitude of running stories - these features of our daily lives are teased out in the works of Philly sound maverick Ada Babar. Babar’s music conveys a sublime terror, a highly technical and often hilarious succession of musical splendor laid out before a lush backdrop. His newest release, Nino Tomorrow (Favourite Tapes), is a split EP with Palm frontman Kasra Kurt. The first half of the album is Babar, transitioning via a phone call sequence midway through to Kurt’s laidback, drifting contribution. The production value is painstakingly consistent throughout, maintaining a sense of space and tone as the songs progress. In many cases, split releases give the impression that the album is a converging point for two distinct worlds, but on Nino Tomorrow, both artists are enmeshed within the other’s sonic palate, resulting in music that feels alien yet wholly relatable. - Josh Kelly
