WEI ZHONGLE‘s most recent album “Nu Trance” is like a broadcast from the future, it’s as if a very singular post-kosmische sound were vaguely situated in the tropics. Can, This Heat, and 80′s Downtown New York lay somewhere in WEI ZHONGLE’s world mutant genetic imprint. The members of WEI ZHONGLE are nomads. The intuitive vocals by Rob Jacobs are sometimes in English but mostly in a language of his own inventive but perhaps also channeling ancient vocal traditions, while laying down hypnotizing guitar. The effects-enhanced clarinet by John McCowen floats over and weaves through it all, pulling everything out in four dimensions. Minds are blown when these three elements merge.

Zhongle 4.0:
John McCowen – Clarinet
Pat Kuehn – Bass
Phillip Sudderberg – Drums
Rob Jacobs – Guitar, Vocals

A pastoral suite of electronics, acoustic guitars, synthesizers and rhythm machine, Breslin is the latest work from FLANGER MAGAZINE, the duo of Chris Bush and Ben Zoeller, whose previous work in the group Caboladies serves as a touchstone. Imitation strings, electronic interruptions, and nylon acoustic guitar figures touched with reverb are the perennial players in this work.

STATE CHAMPION, DAVID DANIELL & DOUGLAS MCCOMBS, and FLANGER MAGAZINE at ZANZABAR, Wednesday, November 14th

Cropped Out and The Other Side of Life are proud to present:

STATE CHAMPION (from Louisville/Southern Indiana/Chicago, on Sophomore Lounge Records)
DAVID DANIELL & DOUGLAS McCOMBS (from North Carolina and Chicago, Illinois; members of SAN AGUSTIN and TORTOISE, on Thrill Jockey)
FLANGER MAGAZINE (from Louisville)

Wednesday, November 14th
at ZANZABAR
2100 S. Preston
9 PM, $6, 21-and-over

STATE CHAMPION started in 2006 as a moniker for the early acoustic experiments of Ryan Davis. It has since evolved into a rock n’ roll band with a Chevy van and not one, but two vinyl records. Their sophomore record, Deep Shit, was released earlier this year on Sophomore Lounge Records, and has received quite a level of acclaim. Because it’s awesome!

DAVID DANIELL & DOUGLAS McCOMBS first met in early 2006 while touring as members of Rhys Chatham’s six-guitar Die Donnergötter band. Following that tour, the two spent several months trading albums and discussing making music together; they began their musical collaboration when Daniell moved from New York to Chicago later that year to study pedal steel guitar.

 These humble beginnings do little to reflect the depth and breadth of each of their talents; both are highly-respected musicians within their circles. Over the years Daniell has collaborated with many notable musicians, including Loren Connors, Rhys Chatham, Tim Barnes, Jeph Jerman, Thurston Moore, Greg Davis, and Jonathan Kane, as well as releasing numerous albums under his own name and with his band San Agustin on labels such as Table of the Elements and Family Vineyard. McCombs is more often seen wielding a bass guitar, whether as a member of Eleventh Dream Day, the acoustic collective Pullman, or the pioneering and inimitable Tortoise; in his role as the driving force behind Brokeback; or through his varied work with the likes of Tom Ze, Azita Youseffi, Will Oldham, Yo La Tengo, and Calexico. Versions, the new double album by DAVID DANIELL & DOUGLAS McCOMBS,was produced by Louisvillian Ken Brown, also a founding member of Tortoise.

FLANGER MAGAZINE is the handsome duo of Chris Bush and Ben Zoeller, who both have also played in the excellent band Caboladies. Expect some unexpected sounds, from the ridiculous to the sublime, in this, their Louisville debut.
