Sirius/ly: Zero 7 - Don't Call It Love (2013)

If this single from their 2013 ep is in any way representative of what their new album is going to sound like, it may very well be the best album released this year.  

Don't Call it Love

Zero 7 has been largely MIA since 2009's Yeah Ghost.  That was an album that was in many ways a huge miss for them as they experimented with heavy electronics and lots of experimentalism.  With the absence of Mozez, Sia, (Yes that Sia.)Tina Dico, and Sophie Barker they forged ahead with a new male and female leads to create something that was more concept and less "chill".  

Everything Up (From Yeah Ghost 2009)

If you aren't down with Zero 7 yet, start with Simple things, their first album from April 2001.  I won't even bother trying to sell you on it.  It's widely known to be one of the best albums ever made, yet criminally underrated in many circles.  If I ever find it, (or if any of you ever find it and are feeling generous...) for less than $100 on vinyl I'm buying the fuck out of it.  Even if I factor my audiophile bias out of it, it's an album that's a must own on any media.  Trust me.
