ZOOS of BERLINZOOS of BERLIN pop-sophistication to punish the pedestrianism of our pampered personalities, this one-of-a-kind PHONOTROPIC performance should prove to be the highlight of Arts, Beats, & Eats "A cosmopolitan pop sophistication hearkening back to some of rock's most famous expatriate Berliners, David Bowie and Brian Eno -- and those two are no jelly doughnuts." -Pitchfork "...guitar atmospherics, some slightly proggy parts and a vocalist who sounds effortless and charming...[Zoos drummer] Collin has worked on tracking and remix sessions (including a Grammy-nominated remix for the Junior Boys) with Carl Craig... Good sounding stuff, and I look forward to more." -Larry Crane, Tape Op Magazine "Zoos of Berlin have been outclassing their Detroit peers for four years with a surreal, Krautrock-melted pop, and it has taken nearly that long for the rest of the country to notice." -Metro Times "When a Detroit quintet calls themselves Zoos of Berlin and slants their consistently brilliant euro-pop toward the avant-garde...you can't help but see it as a statement of intent -- a philosophy that pop music shouldn't be narrow and inbred, but mate freely with all sounds." -Detour Magazine "The Zoos quintet is pure baroque pop with light doses of noise experimentation and brass, driving rhythms, well-measured exhilarative shreds, propelling keyboard melodies and affable post-punk guitars." -Real Detroit Weekly
