Hear New Diamond Terrifier, the Terrible Records-Signed Sax-Drone Zs Solo Honk
This dude is now labelmates with Solange
Out-punk saxophone abuser Sam Hillmer, leader of Brooklyn out-punk mainstays Zs, is releasing his second full-length record as his sax-and-electronics alias Diamond Terrifier. The Subtle Body Wears a Shadow is his first for Terrible Records, the label owned by Grizzly’s Bear’s Chris Taylor. First taste “Triple Gem” is one-fourth of a 30-minute suite that reportedly borrows from drone, ambient, rai, the Ethiopiques series, and even Chicago juke. That’s a lot of stuff crammed through a mouthpiece in just these eight minutes, so feel free to deconstruct or just let the warm waves for Braxton-gone-Eno mush float over you.
