When listening to the soothing synth sounds of Francesca Belcourt‘s new album Zongs, I couldn’t help but wonder, “what the hell is a zong?” I had sudden flashbacks to high school house parties, where small crowds of fearless teenagers would line up to hit “the zong” — a gargantuan, voluminous bong that was designed to put you on your ass. Surely Belcourt couldn’t be referencing the zong, could she? As it turns out, the title of Belcourt’s sophomore solo album has nothing to do with getting blitzed, but it will definitely take listeners on a trip.
