ZEVIOUS - Lowlands

ZEVIOUS: ‘Smear Campaign’ Track Premiere – Decibel Magazine

“Those already familiar with ZEVIOUS will know what to expect from “Smear Campaign,” the first jam from the power trio’s Lowlands album. For the uninitiated, ZEVIOUS contains members of Dysrhythmia, Sabbath Assembly, Many Arms, Smother Party and other out-there acts, playing off-kilter instrumental music combining elements of jazz, metal and prog. Their 2013 album, Through the Wall, is a total mindfucker and Lowlands promises to do the same, albeit in a more streamlined way.” – Decibel Magazine

RICARDA COMETA: Ricarda Cometa 2 review – SonicAbuse

“For those who go dizzy over Sonic Youth’s many side projects, or the recent art-rock sound-clash of Martin Bisi’s BC35, Ricarda Cometa 2 is an improvisational work well worth exploring. Recorded by Sam Nacht at Estudio Libres in Buona Aires and mixed/mastered by Jorge Espinal, Ricarda Cometa 2 recalls the sonic ecstasy of the no-wave movement and taps into that same rich vein of de-constructivism that saw artists such as Glenn Branca experiment with form and tuning in ways so far ahead of their time, their work is still being analysed and explored some thirty years later.” – SonicAbuse

RICARDA COMETA: Ricarda Cometa 2 – Beach Sloth

“An unhinged feral presence makes itself felt throughout RICARDA COMETA’s Ricarda Cometa 2. Defying easy categorization, the album has a distinctly late 70s discordant flavor about it. Elements of This Heat, Pere Ubu, DNA, and more filter their way into a uniquely tortured skronk. Percussion blasts forward with a clear-eyed intensity ready to grab the listener by the throat. Melody, rhythm, these are twisted into unholy sorts of shapes. Grooves have an elastic quality to them for RICARDA COMETA pushes them to the breaking point only for them to snap back into place. […] RICARDA COMETA finds the beauty in the ugly with the absolutely life affirming spirit of Ricarda Cometa 2.” – Beach Sloth

“a major D-beat shit storm! Knuckleheads fond of getting rowdy to Converge and Disfear will find plenty of grist for the mill on the walloping tracks “Blast Beats and Cocaine” and “Cat’s Cradle,” where Patrick Conahan’s headlong guitar and Jason Kolkey’s tortured vocals race around each other.” – Chicago Reader
