Zombi - Spirit Animal, 2009

Zombi - Spirit Animal

 Thought that the synthesizer-happy instrumental duo Zombi couldn't possibly get more celestial than their Goblin-esque last album, Surface to Air (2006)? Wrong again boyo -- it's a good thing I never take your advice anyway. On the five-track Spirit Animal, the Pittsburgh twosome continues to rescue the sounds of 70s keyboard prog from the viscous grip of cheese, concentrating this time around on warmer textures and ever more cosmic soundscapes. Is there an element of the tongue in cheek? Put it this way: The cover of Spirit Animal features an elephant bounding through the cosmos.
