about

New album from Spanish duo ZA! Cult legends in their home country and renowned for their electrifying live shows (as seen at TAAE 10th birthday party, Sheffield ’13) we’re seriously smitten to once again be diverting their colourful Catalan megaflow towards the shores of our humble grey isle.

Two years after releasing WANANANAI (Rockdelux’s Album of 2013), ZA! present a record that defies many conventions, even their own. The title LOLOISMO comes from ‘Loloiza’, the Spanish phrase for the chants that echo out from football fields, where often the collective act of singing holds more value than the lyrics. The only premise the band set themselves was to avoid repetition of songs. To accomplish this, Spazzfrica Ehd (drums/keyboards/vocals) and Papadupau (guitar/trumpet/samples/vocals) have explored new genres and tried new ways of playing and filtering their instruments. The result is ten hits, ten individual worlds that continue to evolve with each listen.

There is no set style: industrial meets dubstep, hip hop, clicks n’cuts electronic music, math-rock. Diversity is key, from the old-shool hardcore clichés to Asian, Arabic or invented landscapes, sometimes sampling live guitar, sometimes passing the whole drumkit through the amplifiers. The elements have been recorded live, on the same take and in the same room, only adding vocal overdubs.

ZA! call it “Loloizable experimental music with a chorus”, because until LOLOISMO the band’s lyrics had never evolved beyond a concept or a single word. As expected, these newly unearthed lyrics match with the experimental language of music, with repetitions, encrypted metrics and neologisms. The will is always to “loloize” rather than to pontifícate; to sing freely, collectively, and in tune with the Halfmighty Silly Sister of Wisdom.
