Zorch – Cosmic Gloss/E.M.F.

Picture 3 300x264 Zorch   Cosmic Gloss/E.M.F.

I’ve always wanted to travel around the country. Yet honestly, Texas never made the cut as far as destinations worthy of going out to. Call it prejudices or pure ignorance but it felt like some kind of foreign country with it’s own customs, norms, and procedures. Most of that tends to be true, yet it is perhaps Austin’s particular spin on this individualism that allows it to continue releasing truly ingenious acts. Like the Octopus Project before them, Zorch is making it’s way out into the country side. With their tour starting this week and a brand new EP released through Pitchfork’sAltered Zones“, Zorch is definitely making friends across the country. Why, you may ask? It’s got a little bit of everything for all of you experimental kids. You prefer Zach Hill’s “Astrological Straits”? Zorch covers those influences in abundance. Do you prefer more rowdy, in your face, electronica like Fuck Buttons? Somehow, Zorch is able to even squeeze that in. Frankly, they remind me in a lot of ways of Tera Melos: sometimes they are indulging in noodly rifts yet by the next song, they are playing with digital synthesizers and pedals. Take a listen through Cosmic Gloss to know exactly what i mean, 9 mins of lofi’d vocals, crashing symbols, and eletronica glitch pop. Yet for those of you who enjoy something more active and less spacey, be sure to check out E.M.F. Furthermore, they’ll be at Danger Danger here in Philadelphia on August 20th. Take a listen and I assume you’ll come to the same conclusions: this tour should be one hell of a good time. So here’s to Austin’s Zorch: thanks for keeping the legacy of truly imaginative music alive.
