great debut from the books founder nick zammuto, mixing experimental arrangements with driving rhythms & quirky melodic hooks.

‘zammuto’ marks a deep reinvention of the highly detailed, genre-defying spirit of the books. trace elements of their collage pop are there, but driven by an often heavily effected, soaring vocal delivery & sounding satisfyingly lo-fi in places, with the feel of a junkyard orchestra, like an energetic kid having a bash around in tom waits’ studio. featuring dense & beautiful string arrangements from gene back (the books) & brain-warping drum performances by sean dixon, the radical & varied sound of ‘zammuto’ leaps out with a searing directness.
