With two clicks of the mouse I downloaded Zoogma’s entire discography for free, legally, from their website. Now it’s not much—just their latest four-song mixtape, titled Wet Hot American Mixtape, and their debut album Recreational Vehicles—but there is no reason you shouldn’t have all of the music this young band has to offer on your iPod. Their Wet Hot American Mixtape is a mix of electronica, drum and bass, rock, and hip hop that is as high energy as it gets. In a live setting the four members of Zoogma, who hail from Oxford, Mississippi and Memphis, Tennessee, unleash a set that is as relentless as the heaviest DJ set you’ve ever experienced but with the kinetic energy of a four piece rock group. Some call it “livetronica” but it is really just a blend of beat-driven dance party bangers and melodic textures performed by a live band with a killer light show. With carefully crafted beats and the ability to improvise on the fly, Zoogma pull off what most producers wish they could. Don’t miss them when they stop by Soundlab on Friday (Sept 7) with support from Brooklyn guitarist/producer, Derek VanScoten aka D.V.S*—cory perla

In fact so much so that they continue to abuse them to make profit for themselves. This is the height of hypocrisy…
