DOWNLOAD: 39 Clocks - 39 Explosion Heats
Before fall swallows up everything, it’s worth raising the flag for one of this summer’s worthiest reissues: Zoned, the compiled works of the severe and shadowy German duo 39 Clocks. These ’80s art-cats split the difference between the Velvet Underground and Suicide and came up with something minimal and pure; “39 Explosion Heats” would sound viciously modern in any age, a deadpan hip-shaker of revolutionary sexiness that the Baader-Meinhof Gang could only dream of achieving. It would appear that 39 Clocks never went anywhere without their sunglasses on, so I’ve decided to follow suit. The least I can do for the cause.
