Official press release:
Nefarious Industries announces the details for Zvi’s new full-length album, Deer Pink, now confirmed for release in April.
ZVI is the eclectic solo project of NYC-based multi-instrumentalist Ron Varod, known for his roles in Kayo Dot, Sabbath Assembly, Psalm Zero, So Is The Tongue, and others. While previous Zvi material can be interpreted as a minimal experimental drone twist on the traditional singer/songwriter, 2019 ushers in a new era of experimentation with Deer Pink.
Fully written by Ron Varod, who contributes vocals, guitars, synths, programming, and electronics, Zvi’s Deer Pink offers six lush tracks delivering a diverse forty-six minutes of avant/experimental tones and movements, the album introducing psychedelic analog synths and warped drum machines while flirting with pop melodies. The LP was engineered, produced, and mixed by Randall Dunn (Sunn O))), Earth, Anna Von Hausswolff, Boris) and mastered by Brian Pyle of Ensemble Economique. The record features contributions from Randall Dunn as well as Carl Gene, Toby Driver (Kayo Dot, Secret Chiefs 3, Tartar Lamb, Vaura), and Matthew Keys (A Fucking Elephant, East Of The Wall), and is complemented by the artwork of Paul Cristina and layout by Greg Meisenberg.
