Overlooked in '08: Zombie-Zombie

Zombie-Zombie consists of two French guys who possess a large array of electronic noisemaking gadgetry and an unbridled love for vintage horror film soundtracks. Sounds familiar, you say? Their beats will, too. But the duo's 2008 debut A Land For Renegades is of a high enough standard and treads enough new ground that comparisons to Justice and the rest of the Ed Banger crew are simply sonic references rather than marginalisations. Tracks like 'Before Night Falls' and the epic opener 'Driving This Road Until Death Sets You Free' are essential listening for anyone who even remotely enjoys electronic music. The video for the latter track also features the best GI Joe stop-motion animation this writer has ever seen:
