the Zoos of Berlin

Zoos of Berlin first popped up on my radar screen when they appeared on Life Beyond Mars - Bowie Covered, an album I wrote about back here. Since then I've acquired the Detroit band's self titled debut three track EP which is also available now. Unsurprisingly, it's very Bowie-esque in itself, which makes me less surprised that a band with no released albums was signed on to cover a Bowie track. Although perhaps not as eccentric as Bowie's music often attained, the three tracks here certainly hold the same pacing and vocal nuances typical of much of Bowie's work. Try out Speak Well Of Manderlay, the middle track on the EP.
