From Stereogum: Former Books member Nick Zammuto already released one fantastic solo record since that influential duo’s demise. Now he’s on to the second, and judging from lead single “Great Equator,” Anchor is going to be even more astounding than Zammuto’s self-titled debut. The song is this wonderfully sprawling dose of avant-pop dressed up in wistful guitar lines and scattered bleeps and bloops worthy of a Hit-Boy production. It’s brisk, brainy, beautiful music that never loses sight of its humanity. Listen to it.
