We had this idea to put a new piece of music out once a month – these are new pieces which came together through 2 days of improvisation in November 2023 – they were recorded as they happened, live at BABALKastel – our new music usually starts this way then the tracks are usually amended/rearranged , generally following where Karen Langley’s vocals are going.

Because we have been working in this way for over 20 years we have become intuitive to what we each create in the moment.

Don’t expect blues or groove/riff jams – these are often excursions in sound.

We are joined on these recordings by our new bass player Chris Gill on three of the pieces. On the second day we were joined by our old friend and past member of BABAL, Paul Smith, who joined us on acoustic bass; Chris switched to play guitar.

The first piece entitled “There Is No Path In The Sky” is available as a free download on our Bandcamp sites and then a new piece of music released on the following first of each month.

BABAL’s latest album release is perhaps their most fluid and fearless yet.

Their 9th album “Let’s Get Lucid” explores encounters with alter-egos and inner conflicting personalities in some beautifully flowing “songs”.

The reality is that these songs have evolved from BABAL improvisations, strong with the sense of foreboding and eclectic themes which BABAL have made their trademark.
