Meet Austin’s spazz-mongering soothsayers, Zorch. Formed in 2009 by Berklee College alum Zac Traeger and a gentlemen known simply as Shmu, the duo was already a devastating live force when it exited the womb, winning hearts and crushing minds in and around an already fertile music scene. Boasting shimmering sci-fi sounds, percussive acrobatics, and a strong inclination toward solid hooks, Zorch’s noise-pop places equal emphasis on the noise and the pop sides of the spectrum. Their new two-song single Cosmic Gloss/E.M.F., their first batch of recordings since their early demos, showcases the more nuanced side of Zorch’s supersonic garage rock-damaged prog. Fans of Boredoms, Holy Fuck, and Hella would do well to visit their music page for some free downloads.
