Former member of art-music duo the Books, Nick Zummuto returns with a follow up to 2012’s DIY self-titled debut. Much like Zammuto, Anchor is an eclectic mixture of sounds and experimental techniques that balances airy pop sensibilities with intricate percussion. Each track manages to flow together effortlessly while spanning various moods and genres ranging from prog rock to electronic to new wave. The result is a rich auricular landscape that focuses on Zummuto’s artistic ambitions and mastery of texture, sound and space. Be sure to check out Zummuto when they embark on their North American tour at the end of August.
