Feeling a little freaky this Friday? Like you drove through a torrid rainstorm last night? Maybe there was some minor flooding and you didn’t make it home until 2:00 AM? Well, if this sounds anything like you, then you need to hear Zorch. This Friday’s pick is a set of demos from this Austin duo. The tracks are primarily instrumental and very much experimental. Word has it they were featured recently on NPR’s SXSW preview show (at least that’s what they tell us). They’re playing a whole bunch of gigs during SXSW (see schedule below).
While we love the title of the song, Crying During Circumcision is a Shame to the Whole Village, we ask that you check out:
