Alec Koone, aka Balam Acab, got lumped in with the witch house coven early on, based on his use of slow tempos, warped vocals and releasing on witch house stronghold Tri Angle Records. Though the hype bubble surrounding that microgenre-which-never-actually-existed has basically burst, Koone has since shifted his sound towards something more along the lines of Glinda the Good Witch house: not the least bit creepy, his newer material is more like a pastoral counterpart to Burial’s urban vibe, incorporating elements of hip hop, field recordings, folk and drone into a richly textured and meditative whole.
