It's Not You, It's Me...
The Zoes are a rockin' trio from T.O. that you'd best keep an ear on. They have a scrappy and punkish sound nicely captured on debut album It's Not You, It's Me...by in-demand producer/musician Josh Korody (Beliefs, Dilly Dally, Fucked Up, The Dirty Nil) at his Candle Recording studio. There's a bit of an Anglo snarl in some of the the vocals that is quite appealing, and the fuzz-drenched guitars are fun. There's lyrical depth here too, though, as on album highlight "(Hey There) Dorothy", the real-life story of a journalist fatally trapped in the Kennedy assassination saga. Of note: The members previously played together in a band called Bam Thwok, but decided (wisely) to change names for this release.
They tell us they'll be announcing gig dates soon.
