|Zod.34 is ALL TINY CREATURES!|
Debut Release: "Segni" Available on limited edition white vinyl 12" w/ included download code and from all major digital download stores! Co-released with the phenomenal indie label Hometapes.
The "Segni" EP By All Tiny Creatures (Zod.34) is officially released and is the newest studio project turned live band from Thomas Wincek (previously known as Emotional Joystick). The band is a proper four piece featuring Thomas on Rhodes Piano, drum kit and percussion by Ben Derickson (aka Curtis Chip), Bass Guitar and Piano by Matthew Skemp and guitar and misc. electronics by Andrew Fitzpatrick. The EP is instrumental and draws influence from a variety of sources ranging from Steve Reich to Neu. The theme of the music is to utilize contemporary classical ideology in song writing technique and execute performance in a "rock band" setting. The results have been sensational and extremely original both in the recording studio and on stage. Thomas got lucky and the 4 piece ensemble that has been assembled works together beautifully on stage with a mixture of traditional band arrangements, improvisation, live sample looping, and live audio processing. "Segni" is a very engaging set of songs that marks some new territory for Thomas and for Zod Records. Check out our website for some sample bits of the EP and don't forget to catch them live on tour! The EP is a co-release with the fantastic Hometapes Record label (of which Zod holds in the highest regard). Hometapes Records is home to some of the absolute best music being released in the world..period. We are thrilled and humbled to be in their company. Check out their website for their exciting new release and amazing back catalog!

|New Release Scheduled! MYSTERY PALACE|
I am absolutely thrilled to announce Zod Record’s debut release of "Flags Forward" from Minneapolis trio, Mystery Palace. Their sound is truly unique, combining live percussion, bass guitar, a mountain of hacked and circuit bent keyboards, and ethereal melodic vocals. Their avant synth pop sound embodies exactly the type of ingenuity and experimentation we have always embraced, but adds a lyrical melody that defines a new era for pop music and Zod Records. "Flags Forward" will be available on CD and a limited 12" on April 27. Prerelease promo materials will be available shortly.
|Back in Business|
After a brief period of dormancy and regrouping, we are back in action with new releases and live performances. We've moved our headquarters and are now centrally located in Milwaukee and our efforts are more concentrated than ever. Check back here for release dates and other Zod updates.
