Zammuto- “The Shape of Things to Come”

Zammuto drops a new video in support of its (uh, his?) latest album on Temporary Residence Limited. Check our review for the album here.

Zammuto- Idiom Wind EP

On his latest EP, the Books member Nick Zammuto deals in the same experimental sounds that made his main band’s previous album so great. I will say the singer-songwriter element of the three songs on this release is more prevalent, though.

Stream Zammuto’s New Single

Just a few days ago, I was hyping the new single Zammuto is set to drop next month in the UK. Well, now you can stream the whole thing via SoundCloud. Nice!

Zammuto- “Idiom Wind”

Nick Zammuto, one half of the experimental music duo the Books, is releasing some solo material this December via a new single on Make Mine.

The Books’ late album, which was one of my favorite albums of 2010, was a surprising turn for the duo considering the increased use in vocals–not sampled, of course–in the music. Zammuto seems to be heading further down that road with his solo material.

With “Idiom Wind,” I can’t say much other than this: I find this song to be really beautiful. The swelling throbs of strings, dry drums, and the earnest vocals just come together into something warm, pretty, and well-arranged. I’m excited to hear what else Zammuto’s got coming down the pipe now!

This project also got some tour dates line up for 2012. Check ‘em:

Feb 3: Mass MOCA, North Adams, MA
Feb 4: 92YTribeca, New York, NY
