Bottoms on sleeves no. 6

Zombi - Escape Velocity (2011)

Bottoms on record sleeves are like No. 9 buses these days. You don't see one for ages, then... Anyway here's another recent example which also happens to be a very good record musically speaking. Zombi are an American duo (that's not them on the cover, sadly) with some luscious electronic Moog-driven tunes backed up by live skin 'n' bone drumming which is all very good indeed. The sleeve itself is very 'retro' in style and intentionally so as the music within is a sort of Tangerine Dream meets Keith Moon in 1975. Zombi possible collaborators on Jean Michel Jarre's next Electronica album? We'd like to think so...

Listen to Escape Velocity here or purchase from all good record outlets.
