Released: 2004 (Relapse Records)
Zombi’s debut full-length LP is one of my favorite records of the last decade. Some people say it sounds like Rush’s keyboard parts, other think it’s a cross between John Carpenter’s score and Italian prog rockers Goblin. I think it sounds like all of this combined, creating an atmosphere reminiscent of dystopic science fiction like Blade Runner. Decide for yourself.
Here is the track Cetus:

Lovelock: An Assortment of Songs
Released: Some time in the last few years (No Label)
I first found out about Lovelock via Myspace a few years ago (yes, the dreaded, defunct digital playground that is Myspace). It’s Steve Moore from Zombi’s side project, a group culling influences from old disco, funk, new wave, etc. Personally I think it sounds like sex music. Regardless, I can’t get these songs out of my fucking head.
Anybody who reads this little blog, or knows me in the corporeal world, knows my musical tastes are quite varied but that I have a special place in my heart for the sounds of analog synthesizers; Lovelock delivers here and these three songs are infectious. Give them a try; I know you’ll end up dancing to them in your car, not realizing people are looking at you and laughing.
Here’s Lovelock’s song Maybe Tonight
