Azita/Zincs Record with Mark Greenberg

Drag City recording artist Azita recorded this week with Mark Greenberg as engineer. The session included Max Lux  (Isotope 217, Tranquility Bass), Rian Murphy (Chestnut Station, Plush, etc), Jason Ajimian (Triage), and Emmet Kelly. The songs were written for a new musical called Detail From The Mountain Side by Chicago playwright Brian Torrey Scott. The EP will be released on Drag City in early 2006.

The Zincs were back in the studio with Mark Greenberg this week....this time recording tracks for a split 7" with the band Monade (featuring Laetitia Sadier of Stereolab). The two tracks will have members from both bands playing on them and are covers of two great Kevin Ayers songs. The EP will be released on Stereolab's Duophonic label next year.
