If You google about Zu releases and exibitions, You cannot reading but ovations and praises. Excellent in experimental free music, seeing an ubique bass-player (Massimo Pupillo) for His presence in lots of side-projects (phenomenal, at my memory, with The Williamsburg Sonatas release, read past komareview), - i mean, maybe You don't exactly fall in love with all that, but You cannot but appreciate the impressive musical attitude. This split cd features Xabier Iriondo as special guest (one more ubique being in italian indie scene), and together They're able to produce a cutting impact, that on the opening track turns into a sung somewhat evil and metal, kind of meeting point in this jazz punk. The other songs - all instrumental - have a sort of electrostatic atmosphere, nervous, with percussions in an everlasting tension, chocked bartone saxophone, and guitars beaten hard, half slaughthered (listen to it on It's Irrelevant Now, - it sounds as a jackass on a see-saw). An excellent sound production, - there's no rest, it's almost a nightmare. The Iceburn, on the scene since early 9o's too, from salt lake city, usa, revelation rec, are more granitic, in a math-rock after-taste and dirty jazz, - the music is compact and mechanic, it's like They rise from the past orchestra experience and blend into Zuism with the three-formula (two guitars and drums), - even if Their beat is heavier and stronger than Zu, in a collage of blood and tantric fire.
.o2. Momentum (Zu feat. Xabier Iriondo)
not yet, probably nobody cares, or nobody cared enough to tell something. Also: nobody reads komakino.
