Bubblin': Balam Acab
- Words: Shawn Reynaldo
Who: Balam Acab
Where: Ithaca, NY
18-year-old Alec Koone originally started Balam Acab a few years back as a noise/drone project, but got caught up in other musical gigs and things like, you know, high school. It was only last winter that Koone, now a music student at Ithaca College, revived the moniker after crafting new songs that married elements of dubstep and UK bass music with the washed-out gloom-and-doom of acts like Salem and Grouper. Although the haunting tones and ghostly vocals of Balam Acab can currently only be enjoyed via MySpace and various blog posts, an EP is coming on Tri Angle Records, as are several of his remixes.
