The Chicago composer Bill MacKay has announced a collaborative project with Cooper Crain, of Cave and Bitchin Bajas. Together, they’re known as BCMC, and in October they’ll release a debut album, Foreign Smokes, built around Cooper’s keyboards and synths and MacKay’s guitar. The first single is “The Swarm,” and it’s an odd and ominous nine-minute exploration. Check it out below.
