Balam Acab

Balam Acab announced a co-headlining North American tour with Active Child this Spring. Balam Acab (aka Alec Koone) will tour in support of his debut LP ‘Wander/Wonder’ released in 2011 on Tri Angle Records. Wander/Wonder’ is a mysterious and genuinely haunting record that seems to exist in a world all of its own making, balanced between the ecstatic ‘wonder’ referenced in the title and something altogether more indefinable and uncertain of itself, like shards of light flickering through a blanket of fog.

Even though ‘Wander/Wonder’ is undeniably an electronic album, it feels strangely organic, rooted in nature, synthetic textures and distorted voices harmonizing with an ever-present oceanic shimmer. Grab your free download of 'Oh, Why' below.
