about

Diamond Terrifier‘s debut full lenth Kill The Self That Wants To Kill Yourself is a towering monolith of spiritual free-RnB sax riffing, embedded in world dub fragments, and harmonizer pedals. Instrument, genre, and technology are pushed to failure. The resulting ‘spooky action at a distance’ darts around in the margins of what’s possible, erratic in sentiment and aesthetic. Uncreative music journalists might say, ‘Clarence Clemons meets Mad Max’, but a broken clock is right twice a day, and in this case, they’d be right!

ZS’ saxist Sam Hillmer connects the dots from Beefheart to Kenny-G to future African saxophones. The only saxophonist in America coming straight out of the noise scene, inventing the saxophone as though Jazz weren’t awesome, he opens new space for the instrument on this deeply irreverent first LP. Kill The Self That Wants To Kill Yourself. Just make sure you pick the right one!
