DOWNLOAD: Zach Hill - Memo To The Man
Drummer solo albums are rarely good–this much Ringo taught us. But when the drummer in question plays like virtually no one else alive (our only reference point being Keith Moon, if he'd been into prog) and is known as a consummate collaborator (see: Hella, Marnie Stern, Boredoms, Wavves, etc.), those reservations can be comfortably cast aside. Such is the case with Zach Hill's new solo album, Face Tat, which is out through Sargent House on October 19. Precedent MP3 "Memo To The Man"–a collaboration with Deerhoof's Greg Saunier that bangs, zig-zags, and dropkicks with expected vigor–is roughly a thousand times more awesome than your local neighborhood drum circle.
