ZATH- Shitpig/Unborn Opppressor - 7" - CAPTCHA RECORDS

click to enlarge First single by this threepiece from Chicago, with members of CACAW, GA'AN and CAVE. It's progressive Metal, but furiously and wild, like savagely thrashing it and turning it upside down. http://captcharecords.bandcamp.com/album/shit-pig

ZEA- Split with OSCAR JAN HOOGLAND - 7" - MAKKUM RECORDS

click to enlarge Limited split-single featuring a joyfully swinging and bouncing ditty called "Exploding Head Syndrome" from ZEA. A catchy pop-tune with guitar, electronis, and vocals, and it's almost a Dancefloor smasher! On the B-side "Electric Clavichord" is an experminental noise-track recorded by Oscar Jan Hoogland with (as the title suggests) an electric clavichord. http://zeamusic.bandcamp.com/album/zea-oscar-jan-hoogland-split-7

click to enlarge Full album by the solo-project of Arnold de Boer, now also a member of legendary dutch band THE EX! 15 tracks, where fancy and bouncing electro-vibes meet with Post-Punk and Afro-Pop influences.

ZEA- The Swimming City - LP - MAKKUM RECORDS

click to enlarge New album recorded by ZEA alias Arnold de Boer (THE EX) with Mats Gustafsson, Xavier Charles, Oscar Jan Hoogland and more. Minimalistic and experimental, interesting and entertaining, vivid and fresh! Sounds like a "No Wave Electronica Jazz-Pop offspring" of THE EX. Really cool! Pressed on 180-vinyl, 12 songs, with lyric-sheet and poster included! http://zeamusic.bandcamp.com/album/the-swimming-city

ZEEK SHECK- Joinus - 2XLP

click to enlarge After more than a decade, this obscure woman comes back with a new album. Some of her previous albums had been released on SKIN GRAFT, and it was some of the strangest stuff even to the standards of that label. This new album is like an Avantgarde-Electro-No Wave opera, recorded with the assistance of 7 more musicians, adding horns, percussions, and more to the sound. Could be compared to GOAT, but without that Hippie-flair, and way more interesting and challenging. But of course, LAURIE ANDERSON is a better reference. http://resipiscent.com/artist/view/46
