Son Raw takes a look at the surprising release from Zomby.
Burial & Zomby connect.
Son Raw – with trepidation Zomby might just be the most idiosyncratic producer of his generation, and that includes the ghost of Burial, the paladinesque Mala and the mercurial Shackleton. Whether trolling his twitter followers, indulging in high art or chastising the world for not recognizing the brilliance of street music from Jungle to Trap, […]
Paranoia seems to pervade every aspect of Zomby’s life, so I didn’t even attempt to go through his publicist to arrange this interview.

This whole “hey let’s dress-up like our parents ate lead paint chips while we were in the womb” […]

Oddly enough, it doesn’t feel as if Zomby is “progressing,”  as much as uncovering another place within himself. In years past, […]
Sach O prefers his Pavilions Flux to Merriweather Post. Still haven’t listened to Panda Bear’s Tomboy, highly doubt I will. As important as Animal Collective are to other people, their whole pastoral, hippie, art-school thing never quite jibed with me and their electronic explorations never seemed that impressive when compared to say, Aphex Twin or […]
