Music: ZZ Cops – Blues in the Key of Why Bother

I’ve been loving the hell out of Charlie Salas-Humara’s move into the world of synthesizers via his work under the name Grapefruit and his contributions to the group Regular Music. This elongated epic of a track, recorded with RM drummer Papi Fimbres, only proves how deeply Salas-Humara is diving into this world of electronic textures and moods. There’s a dub element that creeps into the 16-minute expanse of this track, as well as a little post-punk guitar, but otherwise it relies on the tension between the two rhythmic ideas presented here: one purely electronic, the other organic/acoustic.
