The Books – The Way Out

Released in 2010 on Temporary Residence Records

Format: LPx2, D-Side etching


This band is one of my favorite bands of all time; there is absolutely no group in the world that does what they do. Their music is simultaneously funny, creative, catchy and enlightening. They use found sound and spoken word mixed with innovative recording techniques and acoustic instruments to create beautiful collages of sound that somehow unites all these disparate sound sources, as if they were all meant to be together. Everything these guys do, solo or together, is absolute genius.
