Zolle Streaming New Song “Trakthor”

Supernatural Cat will set the self-titled album from Zolle loose on May 13th, 2013. In celebration of the pending release, a new track from the album is now available for streaming.

Listen to “Trakthor” at or through the player below. The following press release was also issued about hte band:

“Blazing out of the backwoods of Bruzzelle, Italy, born in homage to plow and harvest — harvesting riffs, plowing grappa — the Zolle duo will release their belligerently unhinged full-length debut of rural rampage in plenty of time for tomato season.

“With only two members, somehow the magical Zolle still features members of Zu, Morkobot, OvO, One Dimensional Man and more. The bandits’ self-titled album stumbles triumphantly through inebriated off-kilter riff marches, schizokiller percussive thunder, disharmony and distressed builds abound, the pummeling concoction void of a goddamn human voice for its duration.

“There’s nowhere better on the near-half-hour colostomy of Zolle to let you all know where we’re coming from than just hitting play on this thing. So, here is the album-opening tune which the band would like to inform you is called ‘Trakthor,’ except they’re an instrumental band, making it impossible to actually tell you. But the word ‘Trakthor’ only translates from Italian to English as, ‘Trakthor,’ so there’s no harm done.

“Formed by Marcello Lan (Morkobot), who lays down the meaty riffs, and counterpart Stefano who beefs things up on drums and xylophone, Zolle commenced work on their debut album throughout the summer of 2012, and in just two months they had the music ready to commit to tape. Recorded in September of the same year by Michelangelo Roberti at Mizkey Studio (Morkobot) and mastered by Giovanni Versari (Zu, Morkobot, OvO, One Dimensional Man), performed almost entirely live, the drums are of considerable proportion and made of copper and the amplifier an old digital model of the ’50s which makes for a mammoth sound.

“In addition, Urlo (Ufomammut/Supernatural Cat) and Roberto Rizzo (Quasiviri/Runi) make guest infiltrations bearing drunken gifts of synth throughout the duration of Zolle’s ruckus.”

Review: FiiO E7 DAC and E9 Desktop Amplifier

I recently purchased the FiiO E7 digital-to-analog converter (DAC) and FiiO E9 Desktop Headphone Amplifier after hearing and reading good things about the combo. Both products can be used separately on their own, but the manufacturer thought to design it so that the E7 can be docked into the E9 (illustrated at left) to create […]
