Zs - New Slaves

SKU 05-Social 078
Look, I saw these guys at a tiny loft/performance space in D.C. I mean, I know thorny music and difficult music, but their performance was a mind-blowing concert of rehearsal intensive, relentless rehearsal intensive music. I felt like what I imagined people must have felt like in 1971 when they saw the original Philip Glass ensemble for the first time: "What the heck IS this?" A full 70 minutes of amazement and bafflement and conditionally recommended if you are a person who thinks the stuff released on Cuneiform is for pussies.

"New Slaves is a true behemoth epic, unapologetic, painfully and artfully composed, mind-boggling in complexity, original in sound and intent, while maintaining a minimalist, chugging funk groove throughout its precise post-capitalist haze. It is arguably the most definitive statement from a band that have been challenging listeners for a decade, demonstrating, over the course of 70 minutes, just how versatile their sound can be."

"Ah, a new decade of experimental music is here and, no, it has nothing to do with making 'weird' disco and throwing a Pro Tools filter over the top to make it sound like a cassette tape. Zs are ready to unload their first full-length for The Social Registry. It's called New Slaves, and is the most physically visceral experimental LP we've heard in a minute. Hitting with a similar impact as Oughts giants like The Boredoms' Vision Creation Newsun and Black Dice's Beaches and Canyons, New Slaves is a true behemoth -- epic, unapologetic, painfully and artfully composed, mind-boggling in complexity, original in sound and intent, while maintaining a minimalist, chugging funk groove throughout its precise post-capitalist haze. It is arguably the most definitive statement from a band that have been challenging listeners for a decade, demonstrating, over the course of 70 minutes, just how versatile their sound can be."
