Best new advocate for Atlanta's avant-garde: Primitive Patterns

Staff Pick

Over the last year Adam Babar has quietly laid the foundation for an experimental musical legacy with his self-run Primitive Patterns label. Whether it be such releases as Belgium-based Hazey Jane's Winter Walks EP or the stylized sound collages of drone, pop, and musique concrète that Babar melds under the name Easily Suede, Babar is a revitalizing force for Atlanta's avant-garde underground. The thread that ties the label's catalog together is his singular palette for serene and sophisticated sounds. No matter how cluttered or challenging any of his releases may be, they're all bound by a curated body of music that flows together with purpose and direction. That's no easy chore when corralling sounds that exist on such abstract terms, but Primitive Patterns doesn't release noise simply for the sake of making noise.
