Zombi "Direct Inject" Cassette
ZOMBI make their long awaited return with their new album, Direct Inject! Capturing the spirit of previous albums like Escape Velocity and Surface To Air, while expanding the band's sonic palette into territory, ranging from 80's synth rock ("Direct Inject") to saxophone-heavy slow jams ("Sessuale II"). Direct Inject is essential ZOMBI, and quite possibly their most diverse and engaging record yet. You can't help but get carried up in the slipstream of tracks like "Bodies in the Flotsam", the hard rock/synth strut of "Kamichi & Sandy", the guttural dirge of “The Post-Atomic Horror”, or the heady sonic touches of "Insurmountable Odds".
The spirit of improvisation permeates ZOMBI's newest opus, opening a door into the compositional world Steve Moore and A.E. Paterra exist within and have existed in since the beginning. Direct Inject is ZOMBI in their finest form; taking improvisations and mining them for gold.
The energy behind Direct Inject is palpable; as Steve Moore sums up the band's ethos perfectly: “I love what can happen when you roll tape and just go for it.”
On Direct Inject, ZOMBI indeed go for it.
