Conveyor - Tonight at Zanzabar
No, they’re not just your average psych-rock band from Brooklyn. Ok, so they are that. But they also use synthesizers that sound like old-school video games, and when they’re not jamming on druggy interludes, their shiny pop choruses are pretty bouncy. It’s like John Vanderslice on depressants or Aqueduct after therapy. This summer’s tour is all about playing off their newly released debut, Conveyor. The album opener, “Woolgatherer” teeters between weirdo ambience and summer driving soundtrack, with odd tribal calls that overlap beachy calypso twinkling. If this is what summer in the city feels like, we’re in for a treat. Let’s not forget to mention, they’re sharing the stage with Louisville’s favorite power poppers, The Deloreans. It should be a night filled with all the best kinds of sticky guitar licks and synthesizer loving.
