The Books - Thought For Food mp3 album
The Books' first album, THOUGHT FOR FOOD, sees them already blending their cut-up method with folksy strummings, as on "Enjoy Your Worries, You May Never Have Them Again," making the melody more uneasy with vocal snippets. But that's not the only trick up their sleeves: "All Bad Ends All" has a swinging feel, while the slow build of "All Our Base Are Belong To Them" ends in a banjo free-for-all boosted by some hushed vocals

The Books' method is relatively simple: Zammuto and de Jong combine guitar, violin, and the occasional banjo or cello with sounds from their extensive sample libraries. The input seems almost banal, but the music on Thought for Food is anything but. The Books have an uncanny knack for spinning straw into gold, transforming basic instrumental parts into deeply affecting compositions. Particularly noteworthy is their skill in weaving odd snippets into the fabric of the music.
Seven tracks into Thought for Food, the Books suddenly and sharply bring into focus the nature of the thought. The sample that leads into the Motherless Bastard, of a conversation between an infant and a kind-of g older man over the whereabouts of her folks, is poignantly sad and pretty funny, one of the few instances where a sample plays unaccompanied. At once, it’s uncomfortably loud and close, mingling into a pastel of hushed voices, and the pay-off leads instantly into a Southern coat of velvety guitar chords while a backing beat stymies the pace. And then there's the underlining personal factors of an album like this one. Between all the talk of the album as a composition and not simply brilliantly layered parts, the Books create the kind of album you remember hearing for the first time (myself over two years ago, though I wouldn’t know it until recently).
Exclusive discount for Prime members. Sample this album Artist (Sample). Who ever thought that a twee sampladelic folk album could be life-affirming? Sadly, the album seems to have no sense of when it isn't welcome anymore and ends well before I wanted it to on a song that hardly works as a fitting last song for an album this magical. 49 people found this helpful.
