“MMWIII-PHURBA” is taken from ZS’ This Body Will Be A Corpse, a newly released set of songs that come on this nifty little device called a Playbutton (via Parte), which is literally a button that you can (and will!) wear on your shirt. The album, if you can call it that (I can, because I’m a pathetic reifying music journalist), is part of ZS’ post-New Slaves “holy trinity,” which also includes the recently released Sky Burial on Words+Dreams and a double 7-inch called “33” on Northern-Spy (read more about the releases here).
Oh, and speaking of release parties (what?), there’s a private anniversary party to celebrate Parte’s one-year existence (and six months of selling Playbuttons). Yes, it’s private. But founding member Sam Hillmer has graciously offered TMT readers a chance to get on the list. All you have to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org. The show, which includes performances by ZS, Bubbles, Bow Ribbons, Black Branches, and Hess Is More, will take place in NY on September 28. Email ZS to get on the list and for location info. This is only available to the first 20 people, so get on that!
And last but not least, we have an interview with Sam Hillmer here. It’s a fantastic read.
