Yo Zushi returns from a three-year hiatus with his new zine and album Smalltime.
Hailed by Mary Anne Hobbs (BBC Radio 1) as “the spirit of Bob Dylan for the 21st century”, Zushi has released two albums on Pointy Records and a cassette on Italy’s Best Kept Secret Tape Label.
Of Songs from a Dazzling Drift (2005), Q Magazine said: **** – “This could be the start of something major”; Dazed & Confused called it “a masterclass in storytelling”. Steve Lamacq of BBC Radio 2 praised Notes for Holy Larceny (2008) for its “raw and intriguing singer-songwriter talent”; Q compared it to “Richard Hawley with knowing winks”. Amelia’s Magazine gave it a five star review and wrote: “All the credentials to be the under-sung musical hero that we just don’t get any more… Excellent.”
Zushi will release three albums this year; Smalltime is the first.
