Zammuto is a new project from The Books’ Nick Zammuto and while I’ve never been sold on his band I’m pretty pumped on this solo stuff. Sounds like what I wish the new Battles songs sounded like: intense and kinetic and coming at you from crazy angles. The chopped vocals add a perfect frenetic energy to it all, making the song seem like it could go anywhere at any moment. It never quite explodes but in this case the tension is all the more awesome. Follow Zammuto’sÂ SoundcloudÂ for more downloads, including the funky “Groan Man, Don’t Cry” which he dropped today.
