Brooklyn's post-minimalist drone-du-force Zs are releasing the LP New Slaves II: Essence Imposion! on January 25 courtesy of The Social Registry.
New Slaves II is a collection of remixes of tracks from the band's double album New Slaves that was released last spring, and features interpretations of the Zs' work by Thee Majesty, JG Thirlwell, Zebrablood, Weasel Walter, Gabriel Andruzzi and Ecstatic Sunshine.
A remix of the track “Acres of Skin” by Gabriel Andruzzi is available for listening, and although it streamlines the Zs drum phasing into something slightly groovier, all of the trademark choreographed calamity remains.
Zs are also touring California in November with Arrington De Dionyso in what has to be the coolest bill of the month.
