Album Review : The Books – The Way Out

August 20, 2010 |

The Books - The Way Out was released on July 20th, 2010

Music is an intensely personal thing.  Each of us have wildly different reactions to the rhythms, words, and beats that someone else put together for us.  Sometimes we hear a song that connects with us, electrifies us, inspires us and we rush out to inform others that we’ve stumbled across the next great band.  Sometimes they agree, while other times we’re greeted with confused grimaces before our friends tell us they hate it.  It’s a mystery why one person can be entranced by a certain band and another person, similar to the first in a million ways, finds the music awful.  This is what I’m thinking about as I present you with my next musical offering: The Books – The Way Out.

The Books are an electronic/funk/folk/noise-pop/other-ill-fitting-labels duo from New York City that started working together in 1999.  The idea was simple, to utilize random vocal samples from various sources and incorporate them into synthesized beats.  The execution of that simple idea stradles the fine line between genius and madness, and I willingly give myself over to their insanity.  This band is one of the most exciting discoveries I’ve made in months.
