CRITIC REVIEWS

Like the life it sprang from, the album is a statement of self-sufficiency born of creative tensions, between man and woman, people and land, performance and recording.

Pitchfork

The sharply differentiated genre experiments become less well-defined in the home stretch, but the sound design stays immersive, with pleasant little things to listen to festooned in every niche.

The 405

While these tracks still showcase Zammuto's ear for sound, they also give us a chance to hear a side of his musicianship that we haven't been treated to before.

No Ripcord

The overall strength of Zammuto lies in its song-writing – something that could never really be said of The Books.

Beats Per Minute

It’s not that this material is any less challenging than anything that The Books did, it’s just infinitely more memorable on a first listen.

PopMatters

Zammuto is a fun and inventive record that shows great promise for Nick Zammuto’s post-Books future.

There’s no pretentions, no concepts, just an exploration of music and Zammuto is starting to write the book of the future once again.
