Press release

"On Face Tat, Hill puts as much focus on his oddball, malformed songs as on his world-class musicianship, resulting in an album that feels more compact, slightly less metallic, and altogether more fun. Each of these songs is shot through with Hill's distinctive personality and the restless, athletic agility of his drumming, forming a cohesive whole despite the music's frequent hairpin turns and switchbacks" Pitchfork //  Face Tat is clearly a Zach Hill production, a spiraling psychedelic soup concocted by a man who’s used to everything happening at 380 BPM. At times, the album may seem like it’s made to confuse as much as thrill, but neither of those gets to the truth of Face Tat. Simply put, to paraphrase one of Hill’s lyrics, it’ll turn you into energy.”" The Onion / A.V. Club  //  "Face Tat is going to own your fucking face like a rabid badger let loose in your studio apartment" Impose Magazine  //  Massively talented and incessantly collaborative drummer Zach Hill has announced a fall 2010 release for his second solo album, Face Tat via Sargent House. The 13-track disc features an impressive list of contributors, including Devendra Banhart, No Age (Dean Spunt and Randy Randall), Guillermo Scott Herren (Prefuse 73), Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), Carson McWhirter (Hella), Nick Reinhart (Tera Melos, Bygones) and Robby Moncrieff (Raleigh Moncrieff). This album started from myself and friendsmaking the kind of abrasive / forward music in pop form I’d want to hear, but hadn’t. Theres an emphasis on experimenting with destroying sounds so that the source of the melody, rhythms, vocals, etc is not recognizable or traceable, and then building these things into abstract forms of pop music with conventional structures. Some of the most melodic aspects to this recording are coming from things like the sound of pissing on a stack of Rolling stone magazines (I have a subscription) , kicking in the screen of a computer, arguments on the street. Lyrically , many of the songs started from me writing down a lot of out of context sentences I’d hear passing or from personal exchanges that I found really visual, stimulating or to which I felt a connection.
