Alright, time for a SparkNotes version of Zomes history: back in the day, Asa Osborne played guitar for Lungfish, a post-hardcore/semi emo outfit that’s now defunct. Got that? Cool. Over the past few years Osborne has taken a more reflective, elemental direction with his solo project, Zomes. So far, he’s released two LPs — Zomes in 2008 on Holy Mountain and Earth Grid (TMT Review) earlier this year on Thrill Jockey.
Fast-forward to January 24 and you’ll see him releasing yet another album, this one called Improvisations. According to Thrill Jockey, “it consists of three primordial cosmic transmissions that phase in and out of a thick drone filled ether.” In other words, new evidence for extraterrestrial life.
