Diamond Watch Wrists
Diamond Watch Wrists is a new project from Guillermo Scott Herren (Prefuse 73, Savath y Savalas + 1000 other names) and Zach Hill (drummer for Hella) announced in mid 2008. According to the Facebook page for Diamond Watch Wrists, Scott Herren “plays the instruments and sings the songs” while Zach Hill “plays the drums.”

As many know, GSH is a prolific musician and records under many different names past, present and future. His most popular being Prefuse 73 and Savath y Savalas. Upon hearing the recordings, Diamond Watch Wrists reminds me of A Cloud Mireya, the collaboration between Scott Herren and Claudia Deheza (School of Seven Bells, On!Air!Library!) but with Scott singing. Don’t get me wrong, I love Savath y Savalas old and new, but it is nice to hear Scott sing in English over the A Cloud Mireya-like melodies. Check the myspace to hear.

Diamond Watch Wrists is set to drop May 5th on Warp. Hopefully.

And hopefully we get see a release and hear more from Risil, another new project from GSH collaborating with members of School of Seven Bells, Pivot, Sunn O))), Hella and others. Sounds dope!
