ZOOS OF BERLIN’S wonderful new LP Lucifer in the Rain is finally available with relative ease. We recommend buying from Forced Exposure or finer record stores.
"Zoos of Berlin are a Michigan band whose urbane but skewed style of art-pop has few immediate peers, though Roxy Music, the Sea & Cake, Destroyer, and Berlin-era David Bowie are clearly in their family tree." -SPIN
"Detroit’s Zoos of Berlin are an intriguingly odd lot, whose music doesn’t really sound like anything else going on right now. The word I keep coming back to is regal. It is soft-focus but obtuse, a little foppish and often fancy. Still pop music made by guitars and keyboards and drums and voices, but these guys are definitely in their own orbit." - Brooklyn Vegan
“It’s a stunning LP full of meandering melodies, mellifluous vocal harmonies and song structures that are just slightly askew.” – Decoder
“porcelain pastiche” – Stereogum
"Not completely pop, not completely noise experimentation, it is, at its heart, a swath of indie-punk shred, gossamer baroque pop stateliness, expressive jazz penchants, and goosebump-inducing production." - Tiny Mix Tapes
"They play with pop and jazz elements as components for a steadily cool groove and could very well have hit on the next sound of the century" - Village Voice
