$21.30 $25.98

Artist: Zu / Robinson, Eugene
Title: Left Hand Path
Product Type: VINYL LP

Zu has always been a mercurial and ever-changing entity: unafraid of cross-genre explorations, eager to break down barriers between musical styles. Despite playing traditional instruments, major influences on Zu's music have always been sonic explorers like Coil, Throbbing Gristle, or early Neubauten. The sound of the Left Hand Path is the somewhat hidden side of Zu, though latent in all of it's previous music. It's like digging out a box from the earth, containing everything the band had wished to highlight in previous works: ambient and drone landscapes; acoustic explorations in obscurity. The album starts programmatically with the sound of a shovel digging the earth - a soundtrack for a descent into the underworld. It's moon musick. All of the members played electronics and Massimo focused mostly on guitars. The recordings were then sent to Eugene S. Robinson of Oxbow fame. Zu knew he was the right person to add vocals to it, and to transform the music again, into a sort of contemporary post-everything voodoo blues.
