For some sad, sad reason, I had never heard of Zombi until moments before drafting this post; I’m listening to some of their stuff as I’m typing and I’m being blown away. How a spacey prog-rock duo (comprised of a bassist and drummer who both tinker away at synths) signed to Relapse got past my radar, I’ll never know, but you can stream their new song “Slow Oscillations” at PopMatters. It’s quite hypnotic, and while I wouldn’t call it heavy, I’d imagine it’d sit quite well on the ears of our general demographic. You guys love the prog as much as we do! This is like a throwback to classic prog rock, and you’ll dig it if you’re into bands like Rush or Yes.

Zombi’s new album Escape Velocity is due out May 20th on Relapse Records. Be on the look out of that futuristic voyage. Below and after the jump, you can listen to some more songs from the duo, plucked arbitrarily from the YouTubes! And wouldn’t you know it, they’re all excellent!
