Atlantic recording group, the highly influential UK-duo Zero 7 have released Record, a retrospective album that is out now! To compile Record, Zero 7 – AKA Sam Hardaker and Henry Binns – combed through their back catalogue to compile a track list spanning their extraordinary 10-year history. A special digital deluxe edition of the album will include a collection of remixes and rarities personally selected by Hardaker and Binns. This collection has attained "must own" status for Zero 7 fans. And if you have not yet been exposed to them, I just do not know what you are waiting for because you need to expose yourself- ahem- to the Zero 7 goodness.
A little background info for neophytes unfamiliar with Zero 7: Childhood friends Binns and Hardaker began their musical career as sound engineers before teaming up as Zero 7 to produce remixes for the likes of Radiohead, N.E.R.D., Sneaker Pimps and Lambchop, which in my opinion, are all incredible bands to be associated with. In 2001, the pair captured the attention of music lovers around the world with their now-classic debut, Simple Things. That era-defining collection was followed by the 2004-released acclaimed second album, When It Falls, along with their contribution ("In The Waiting Line") to the Grammy-winning soundtrack of Garden State, which is one of my fave movie/soundtrack combos ever, and not just because I am from New Jersey.
The duo also notched a Grammy Award nomination in their career, too.
