Zammuto, Dosh

Tue., Sept. 9, 8 p.m.

On the new Anchor (Temporary Residence), his second solo album since the dissolution of slice-and-dice art-pop project the Books, Nick Zammuto seems to be going for a live-band sound. The record does use a bit of studio wizardry—some looped or sampled percussion here, some postproduction whatsit there—but the latest incarnation of the four-piece band Zammuto named after himself sounds more or less like it’s playing his tunes in real time. What hasn’t changed is the literary quality of those songs: he updates old-time murder ballads in “Henry Lee,” about a man who kills his true love, and evokes a nagging sense of guilt about an unspoken misdeed in a track that he’s for some obscure reason titled “Hegemony,” whose instrumental component is a fizzy rush of Dirty Projectors-style complexity. He builds his arrangements around rhythm; the pretty but forgettable melodies, sung by Zammuto himself or by guest vocalist Daniela Gesundheit of Snowblink, drift through a hazy constellation of synthesizer lines and terse guitar patterns. The live-band aspect ought to enhance this group’s onstage impact, but its material feels a bit slight compared to the Books’ richly textured aural puzzles. —Peter Margasak $15
