It has taken five long years for Nick Zammuto and Paul de Jong to produce the next one up on the list to "Lost & Safe" (Tomlab, 2005), their third and last album until today- “Music For A French Eelevator And Other Short Format Oddities By The Books” (2006) doesn’t count as it was a compilation of music composed as a soundtrack for installations under The Books direction. The fourth effort coming from the New York duo and their love of multimedia experiments and collage post concrète will see the light of the day on July the 20th through Temporary Residence. Those of you that would like to read about its methodology and inspiration... sampler, sampler, mathematics, sampler, mathematics... of their new material, can do so on their new Tumblr blog.
