ZABA (LIMITED EDITION)
Limited-edition green & purple starburst 180gram vinyl! Gatefold sleeve features gold-foil lettering.
'ZABA', the strange and sexy debut by Glass Animals, is coated in dripping reverb, creating a slippery feel that matches the effortless way the band slides between electric and electronic instrumentation. The album conveys the chilled-out sophistication of dance music via rock, as on the low-slung groove of "Toes" or the rippling single "Black Mambo". Sonic details are almost hallucinatory: the echoes that grace opening track "Flip" suggest a slow-motion reverie before the song locks into a rock groove, while "Pools" lives up to its name with its aquatic sound. Meanwhile, "Intruxx"'s looping beat sounds like a trip-hop rhythm translated into live percussion that sounds right at home next to "Wyrd"'s bubbly electronics.
