Zwei Null Zwei, the krautrock influenced Brooklyn band made up of former DC scene mainstays Eli Janney (Girls Against Boys), James Canty (Nation of Ulysses, The Make-Up, Ted Leo + Pharmacists), Sohrab Habibion (Edsel, SAVAK), and Geoff Sanoff (Edsel), have shared their debut single. "Productivity" jams hypnotically on a single chord and a relentless beat with occasional shouts of "More to do! Less time to do it!", while "No Reference" slows the pace, floating on a synth-heavy groove. Give both a spin below.

The group say they will be playing a few shows in May and June, details still to come. Stay tuned.

Meanwhile, Sohrab's other band, SAVAK (which sometimes includes Canty and Sanoff) have a few upcoming shows, including a run opening for Ted Leo's reunited '90s band Chisel. Those hit NYC's Le Poisson Rouge on May 14. All dates are listed below.
