Phoned-In Friday: The Books


In addition to being The Things that arrived in The Box here at at The Library, The Books are a musical duo who blend spare vocals and acoustic instrumentation with aural collages of “found sound”. The results are highly- and some might say surprisingly- listenable.

– The Books homepage
– The Books Wikipedia page
– A profile of the band in from the Boston Globe
– A Q&A with NY Magazine
– Great write up in the Independent

I recommend The Lemon of Pink and Prefuse 73 Reads the Books.
