Proud father sent me a "single" from his upcoming album, Hearu Shi no Proud Father (The Death of Proud Father). There's no release date at the moment, but we are working hard on it ! For now you can enjoy this single or, for those who want more, browse through his already quite impressive discography (with a special notice on "March" and "eizo sakushin shu Proud Father").

End of transmission.

SOON ! /// Proud Father - Hearu Shi no Proud Father (C80 Cassette)

Most of you guys probably don't know about Proud Father, from New Orleans, LA. And that's a shame, trust me.

But at ZZP, we're sensible people, and we know what's good for you. Plus it's almost Christmas and stuff, so it's the perfect time.

Yup, the perfect time for releasing Proud Father longest effort to date : "Hearu Shi no Proud Father" aka "The Death of Proud Father". 80mn of tape collages & manipulations, soundscapes, samples, ambient, harsh noise & much more weird sounds.

Honestly, i'm not usually fond of this genre, but Proud Father stuff is absolutely FASCINATING. Carefully orchestrated chaos drips from your speakers. It floods your room softly, like a tide. Glimmering clouds and fuzzy swarms of drone angler fishes lure you in the depths.

Listen to preview extracts here and here.

Preorder should be open soon, as we're still working on the packaging for this release.

SOON! /// Huata - Atavist Of Mann (C70 Cassette)

Second release with the fuzz-zealots of Huata, and this one is a mean baby ! Their first full-length, "Atavist Of Mann", will be available on tape on Zugzwang Productions !

This long awaited magnum opus will be released with an alternate artwork, embodied in a cool, handmade packagings. Limited to 50 copies ! More infos about this packaging soon.

Sonically speaking, Huata crawled their way up from the sewers, leaving behind cohorts of toothless, hysterically laughing tramps and giant cave rats, bathing and hunting in their waste. Their ascencion led them to emerge through the ruins of a collapsed church. Gazing at the sky, all they saw were waves of gleaming steel, vomiting fire on the terrified masses. Slowly, they gathered their instruments, even digging and old organ under the calcinated fragments of a broken cross. And then, began the mass.

And if my prose sucks, you can just listen to "Atavist Of Mann" in its entirety here on how it's about to kick your ass.
