Zammuto’s second album arrives in September


Zammuto have finally confirmed a release date for their hugely anticipated second album, Anchor. After leaving me psyched up with the three mind-blowing tracks they released last year as part of a crowd-funding campaign, the quartet led by Nick Zammuto have recently premiered the first official single, ‘Great Equator’.

Anchor is slated for a September 2nd release via Temporary Residence, and like their 2012 eponymous debut, Zammuto did all the recording, mixing and mastering at his own shed-turned-studio. “Anchor embodies the very DIY lifestyle and self-sufficient approach that has come to define all that is Zammuto”, describes the press release. It adds that “the arrangements have more space, the songs are more dynamic, and the vocals are delivered with a confident intimacy that is almost alarmingly beautiful.”

In support of the upcoming album, Zammuto have announced a string of live dates across the US, starting in New Haven, Connecticut on August 28th. We’re keeping our fingers and toes crossed for a European tour to follow later in the year.

Now listen to their excellent new song ‘Great Equator’.

Mixtape #48

This month's hand made mixtape comes from Dosh, the incredibly talented multi-instrumentalist from Minneapolis, US. His latest album, Milk Money, was one of CTD's 2013 Album Picks and remains a favourite of ours. Dosh's mind-bending compositions, made up of keys, samples and drums, magically come alive on stage through loop station wizardry. The electronic and hip hop influences that colour his recordings were also guiding his hand when he put his mix together. Enjoy this all vinyl groovy selection.


Zammuto releases third and final track ahead of new album


Zammuto‘s second album is in the works and the foursome led by Nick Zammuto launched last month a campaign to help fund the yet-to be-titled album. Over the duration of the campaign, which ends today, Zammuto promised to share three tracks from the upcoming album. We already heard the excellent ‘Sinker‘ and the funky as hell ‘Need More Sun’ and the third and final track is now streaming for our listening pleasure. Listen to ‘Corduroy’ below.
