Zu: Cortar Todo

From Noisey:
Here is a new album from Zu, the weird-as-fuck Italian noise-metal that fit somewhere between Sleep/ High On Fire, the sludgier moments of Iron Lung, and Japanese tripcore heroes Paintbox, all swimming through moments of noise, ambience, and saxophones. Sometimes it builds to minimalism, sometimes it builds to chaos, and sometime it leads to traditional song structures. This album takes you on a wild disorienting journey, leaving you jumbled but not necessarily disjointed on the other side. Cortar Todo was recorded in the countryside outside of Bologna, Italy, and is the band’s fifteenth album in as many years. Known for their prolific musical experimentation, Zu has played over a thousand shows in their career, and has collaborated with artists including The Melvins, Mike Patton and Thurston Moore. If you are interested in having your mind stretched to far out and confusing places, listen to this.”
Cortar Todo is out March 24 on Ipecac Recordings; listen to the title track below.

My name is Michael Dix; I'm a decade or so past being down with the kids, but to me new music never gets old. Apparently I like music that sounds like faulty kitchen appliances and ritual slaughter; really I just like what I like, whether that happens to be indie, pop, punk, hip hop, metal, electronica, Afrobeat or jazz. Follow me on Twitter @FoamHandsBlog to receive notifications of new posts and the occasional random brain-fart, and please share links wherever you can. Enjoy!
