New Once, the debut SUS album from Sacramento multi-instrumentalist Zac Nelson, dives deep into the worlds of pop, folk, psychedelia and rock with a raw but passionate style of colorful, experimentally-inclined (but always catchy) compositions. The LP is a sharply-hewn slice of Californian pop eccentricity, clocking in at just over 20 minutes with 9 distinct, densely layered pop miniatures.
Born in Illinois and based in Sacramento, Zac Nelson's discography of pop experiments across a myriad of personas, collaborations and solo affairs include work with ALAK and Biosexual, recordings as CHLL PLL w/ Zach Hill of Death Grips and a steady output of solo material. His past excursions in leftfield rock (Charbroile [Debacle, 2012]) and blasted sound design (Exis [Further, 2013]), are evident in the creation of SUS008, New Once, spotlighting Zac's drumming, vocals, and song-writing capabilities in full.
The artwork for the New Once LP features hand-drawn work from the team of Santiago Carrasquilla and Wade Jeffree.
SUS008 was mixed and mastered in NYC by Rusty Santos (of Animal Collective and Panda Bear fame)
