COMING SOON: Zombi, ‘Escape Velocity’

The Artist/Album: Zombi, Escape Velocity (May 10, Relapse)

The Details: A little less Goblin; a lot more Giorgio Moroder, with enough Kraut-rock flavorings to keep things interesting. Or as synth-slinger Steve Moore put it, “I think the album came together exactly as planned, considering we had no plan. In fact, I’m not even sure we knew we were making an album. Actually I can’t remember at all.  Anyway it’s Jeremy’s artwork that really ties it all together. Naked women, sports cars, mid-century modern architecture, space. The boy’s a Shakespeare.”
