Zu - Carboniferous (2009)

Somehow I had just missed that Zu had released a new album (or rather it had leaked) until just recently. Perhaps not a brilliant album, it's kind of corny with a mathy sound. Yet I couldn't help finding this to be very catchy while still maintaining an acceptable level of creativity and innovation. Much reminiscent of John Zorn's jazzcore-ish stuff. This album manages to travel from heavy doom metal (almost sludge) to math rock to punk jazz without creating a sense of disorientation. It is certainly not free jazz as some people seem to believe though. Stop distorting your bass and sax, I'm weak for that.

    "I fuck my artificial fish" as the electro underground legends from Chicago - Drexciya - would've replied.
