ZS - Sky Burial C18 coming Sept 21

On September 21, WORDS+DREAMS will release SKY BURIAL, an 18-minute noise collage made from selections of live recordings of encore sets on Brooklyn avant-rock maestros ZS' recent European tour. At moments acerbic and ominous, each full side-length piece captures the birth of a tiny universe, chaos and discord channeled into hypnotic, engulfing harmony -- and then blinking back out of existence before you even have time to fully appreciate its majesty.

The release will be available in an edition of 200, with 50 available on super-rare mirror-finish gold tapes, with the remaining 150 on snow white tapes, both with offset printed art, custom die-cut, hand-numbered inserts, and a download card.

SKY BURIAL is one piece of the three-part coda to ZS' epic multi-year New Slaves campaign, the other two coming in the form of a limited double 7" called 33 from Brooklyn's avant-garde gurus at Northern-Spy, and a limited 75-minute playbutton from Parte, THIS BODY WILL BE A CORPSE.

There will be a very unique release event for SKY BURIAL announced soon, so keep your eyes on this space for details!
