Anthony d'amato                   cold snap (2016)

Produced by Mike Mogis (Bright Eyes, First Aid Kit) and recorded with an all-star team of Omaha musicians including Conor Oberst and members of Bright Eyes, The Faint, and Cursive, Cold Snap is Anthony D'Amato's most ambitious, incisive, and sophisticated collection yet, with a larger-than-life sound propelled by dual drummers, explosive guitars, infectious hooks, and erudite lyrics. Written primarily during a touring hiatus forced by a broken finger, the songs explore the schisms between perception and reality, projection and truth, who we are and how we're seen.
