aidan baker/simon goff/thor harris: the bit

The Bit is the second recorded collaboration between Aidan Baker (Nadja, Hypnodrone Ensemble), Simon Goff (Jóhann Johannsson, Hildur Gudnadottir), and Thor Harris (Swans, Shearwater, Thor & Friends). Following on from 2017's 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 molded 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's 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, Baker's guitar and Goff's violin weave together beautifully, forming a deep bed of melody, ambience, and reverb. Given the trios credentials it's not surprising they have created another immersive and stunning record.
