They’re not quite up to Robert Pollard’s prodigious output, but Brooklyn experimental troupe Zs have released about eight records since 2003. Oddly enough, it was radio maven Howard Stern who put them on the map; he decided that they were a prime example iof whether avant music is full of it or not. Now prepping a release party, you can judge for yourself—they come off more on the improv/jazz side of things, but in the vein where you’ll need some good earplugs to appreciate it. With Excepter, Mick Barr, and Silk Flowers.
