Northern Spy Records. New York.
Zs is devoid of genre and unclassifiable. Since 2000, founder Sam Hillmer has remained its purveying constant, and with the addition of loose-limbed, meditative percussionist Greg Fox (Liturgy, Guardian Alien, Man Forever), and virtuosic avant-classical guitarist and composer Patrick Higgins, the band has found its epochal lineup.
« Zs sure do sound like masters of their craft. »
« Zs is a band; it’s also a perpetual itch, an index of unease around the restrictions of genre in New York experimental music. »
