Trilogi Peradaban

(Dual Plover - DP42) CD $12.00 (Out-of-stock)

Zoo's successful concoction of punk rock seasoned with traditional music elements makes them a beacon of the Indonesian Underground. Their debut album, Trilogi Peradaban (Civilization Trilogy) is formed by three distinct movements forged from sessions in 2007 amd 2008; it traces the band's fast evolution from the Ruins-esque proto-punk of Neolithikum (New Stone Age) and Mesolithikum (Middle Stone Age) to the spontaneous, folkish, neo-traditionalism ranting of Palaeolithikum (Old Stone Age). Twenty-two tracks range from dissonant math-rock, expelled in quick Melt-Banana-like succession, to acoustic shamanistic vocal utterings produced with the skeletal lineup of drums, bass and djembe, all with the deft vocalizations by Rully Shabara Herman, who tells a story of the deterioration of cultural roots in modern civilization.
