Born in a sea of heavy hallucinogens and laser beams, the debut full-length from Julian Grefe and Justin Geller is bound to simultaneously send trucker hat hipsters and candy ravers for a loop. Funky beats, congas, glitch, acid synths, and bizarre vocals tweaks coalesce into various incarnations of house, techno, breaks, indie rock, and noise as if the DFA were producing a Royal Trux and Mouse on Mars collaboration. Saying this sampledelic electronic album is not a mere collection of singles is an understatement. I have not heard this many influences channeled through such an exciting full-length experience since UNKLE’s Psyence Fiction. Zeppelin 3 is the album to make everyone lose their shit at your next house party or outdoor festival. Forget the Klaxons, rave-punk is reborn anew.
