Nick Zammuto is getting ready to release Anchor, the second album of his post-Books solo career. We already heard the bloopy breeziness of “Great Equator,” and now he’s released a very different offering, “Hegemony.” The new one features hard-hitting live percussion before shifting into a crunchy guitar solo to close things out. It’s a far cry from the sample-filled folk music of early releases by the Books, but it also feels like a direction Zammuto has been heading in for years. Listen to it over on NPR.

Anchor is out 9/2 on Temporary Residence.

  1. Man Zammuto is getting weirder and weirder. I actually like this way better than that first single though. Got them riddims going wild. Hope they come back to Florida because they have one of the tightest, funniest and best live shows I’ve ever seen.

    That’s his voice btw, not a female’s.
