Album Review

Zakarya – “413A” – [Tzadik]

Jawbone   9/16/2006   A Library

Imagine, if you will, Tom Waits in a drag-down knock-out brawl with Popeye, while Bluto lurks in the shadows waiting to pilfer the pockets of the loser (#4). Zakarya conjure up such images with their instrumental blend of accordian, odd time signatures and metalesque guitars.

Borrowing freely from experimental rock, free jazz, metal riffs, klezmer and Capt. Beefheart-like rhythms, this is an interesting and unusual release.

Paris based Zakarya’s third release on Tzadik features guest guitarist Marc Ribot throughout.
