Zion I’s new album Atomic Clock drops this month. I’ll be the first to admit that, while Zion I has played Sacto often, I’m not all that familiar with his sound. But I dig the track “Many Stylez,” with its dub-reggae backbeat, spacey synths and general chill-back stoner vibe. Not sure if this song belies the rest of the album’s hip-hop vibe, but I paid for the rest of the download, so that’s saying something, eh? Zion plays Sac this week with the Holdup and Random Abiladeze, with Zuhg as backing band. Sacramento State University Union, 6000 J Street; www.zioni-thetakeover.com.
