Boredoms - Super Roots 10 [2009]

01 Super Rooy
02 Ant 10
03 Ant 10 / Estereo 10 (Remix by Altz)
04 Ant 10 (Remix by DJ Finger Hat)
05 Ant 10 (Remix by DJ Lindstrøm)
06 Ant 10 / Mineral Dub Break (Remix by Altz)

The EP went on sale last Wednesday, though CDJapan says that the first pressing is already completely sold out, unsurprisingly enough. The EP comes with typically headache-inducing cover art from frontman EYE, who also produced the thing. Thrill Jockey, the band's U.S. label, has no word on an American release.

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.
