**Given the DIY nature of these jacket designs (they are spray-painted, then screen-printed by hand), some of the sleeves are in varied condition. No two jackets are the same and all look a bit rough, but don't worry - that's the intended effect.** BAT kneads out three knuckled neck-snappers and a pair of warped techno-house aces for Brooklyn's Bangers & Ash label. The ghosted, bit-crushed slow bounce of 'Bulldozer Rituals' shares much in common with mutant gang-banger instrumentals 'Vulgar Geometry' and 'Venom, Pheromone, and Phosporus', coming off like some warped refractions of '93 Mobb Deep or RZA beats, whereas the sub-scooped 4/4 momentum of 'Contrecoup' and the lush suspense of 'Tide Tunnels' ramp up to throbbing techno-house tempos with a vibe somewhere between Huerco S and Phork. Aces.
