The Way Out - Temporary Residence
FILTER Grade: 83%
By Mary Kosearas on August 25, 2010
The Way Out is an intricate collage of forgotten recordings recast into the musical form known as The Books. On their first full album in five years, Nick Zammuto and Paul de Jong generously deliver 14 beautifully-different tracks, including a rare four with vocals. This electronic-folk duo, in the likeness of bohemian hedonists, turns meticulous attention-to-detail into bounding creativity—and something unequivocally bookish.
