Sapropelic Pycnic is the world debut of music presented under the name of "Ka Baird. While this record is a commencement of many sorts, it is in no way a mere beginning: Ka is one of the founding members of experimental psychlings Spires That In the Sunset Rise. Formed in 2001 out of the Chicago scene, and described by late guitar legend Jack Rose as a "female Sun City Girls," Spires' sisterhood of sound deepened the New Folk slant with an array of avant- and world-flavored directions drawing them ever-farther into the source. From Ka: "The album itself pretty much follows the progression of the live set. Beginning with "Tok Tru" I assert my freedom- a punk song where i neigh like a wild horse repeating "We are beyond the smoke and mirrors!!" and stop trying to manipulate, coerce, influence, or control me! It is a song of freedom and autonomy.
