Zombi, Arp, and Hours of Worship LIVE
Friday, December 18 2009 7:00 PM 18+
Known to the rock and roll community as Relapse Records’ prog-tronica wildcard, Zombi are the culmination of dense, intricately constructed synths and strings over intense polyrhythms. For just a duo, consisting of Steve Moore on keys and bass and Anthony E. Paterra on drums, they produce an immense sound that summons the furthest extremes of their roots metal, no-wave and electronic scenes. They have hit the stage alongside a diverse array of intelligent music purveyors including Don Caballero, Isis, The Psychic Paramount and Trans Am. Their third album Spirit Animal has been noted as their piece de resistance, of which The Needle Drop remarked, “Nothing is worse than great ideas presented badly, and this album clears that hurdle with ease.”

HOURS OF WORSHIP
Trance/dance/soundscape prodigies Hours of Worship trade in clever arrangements of windy keys, samples, and phantom beats. Equal parts earth and space, they translate from headphone to dancefloor seamlessly, with droney synth pads underlying dexterous melodies.
