Via Passion of the Weiss:

Bug eyed monsters clutching swooning heroines. Grassy knolls and brazen adventurers. Blue Beatle butterflys. Murder scenes swept with neon green urgency before tops are turned Ron Burgundy. What’s a Golden Gopher to a taxiderm? Zen koans by Zilla Rocca.

Skies stained the color of ash and Tiramisu. Tarnished crowns and lacquered hair. Gold not bronze. Gazebos the color of ginger. Blu Cantrell doppelgangers and blind eyes. Has-Lo, the hard-boiled hallucinator.

Corner cramped, tattoo covered girls, mother of pearl eyed girls, long legged flamingos, mouth leaking magenta, lights no white polar bears, nights over. Open Mike Eagle, sardonic and scoping the albatross. Everything finishes with bass. What? The fuller spectrum.”

Three Dollar Pistol Music and World Around Records proudly present Zilla Rocca’s Nights & Weekends EP.  Another martini before jackhammer season begins. Glorious pulp from your favorite bent nose boy. Good diners, bad women, and black coffee.

Inspired by late night 1980’s films staples such as Barry Levinson’s Diner and Martin Scorsese’s After Hours, with a helping of booze hounds, dive bars, and all the wrong women you chase in your 20’s, Nights & Weekends EP is the unbuttoning of the collar for Zilla Rocca aka Vic Sage, the Noir Hop originator and Corrupt Novelist.  Over a scant 9 songs and 29 minutes (plus a bonus remix track of the lead single “Full Spectrum”), Rocca’s third solo offering features appearances from Has-Lo (Mello Music Group/ Wrecking Crew), Dr. Quandary (World Around Records), Brian Brizzo (Lessondary Crew), Curly Castro (Wrecking Crew),  Small Professor (Wrecking Crew) and more.  From the Philip Marlowe credo on the opener “Creme De Menthe” to the sticky ’60s funk cover of D’Angelo’s “Devil’s Pie”, Nights & Weekends EP lives up to it’s namesake: it’s where all the action goes down.
Hell, it’s better than friends with money.
You can download the album at whatever price you seem fit over at Bandcamp. The download comes with the Nights & Weekends Promo video as well as the video for the second single “Black Cherry” directed by 5846 Films.  Just make sure you leave some milk in the fridge and a can of tuna out for the cats.  Hurry up and get it now before it goes on sale for $7.99 at iTunes.
Physical copies of the EP will be on sale for $10 starting on Thursday 9/22/11 via Bandcamp and ClapCowards.com. I’m not gonna lie to you–the packaging is hotter than an envelope with money in it.  Check back for it this week at the Tumblr page

And the official Nights & Weekends t-shirts will be falling off a truck by the beginning of next week and on sale for $15.

So don’t even shower tonight — throw aftershave on your cheeks, spray some cologne on your collar, watch the “Black Cherry” video again, and gallop through the city with a lighter in your pocket and a cigarette girl on your arm.
