2010 release from the Canadian quartet. Zeus was born from the musical friendship of Mike O'Brien and Carlin Nicholson. The two Toronto-based musicians have been living on the road for the past few years as the backing band for singer/songwriter and Broken Social Scene member Jason Collett. With a lineup rounded out by longtime friends and musical compatriots Rob Drake and Neil Quin, Zeus draws upon classic influences to craft timeless songs, complete with fuzzed out guitars and shimmering harmonies. As astute students of the history of Rock n' Roll and purveyors of a sound that cross-references the British Invasion with '70s southern U.S. Rock, these producers extraordinaire create powerful and infectious music and do so as though it's an entirely natural process.
