The Books - "The Lemon of Pink"
The Books are two godfathers of sample-based collages, pulling sounds from all aspects of life. Conversation, creaking doors and exclamations are all part of their fabric. It can create a familiarity that puts you at ease immediately—just listen to "The Lemon of Pink Pt. 1." A lazy guitar bends around the riff with strange alien beauty, the sort of half-melodies you hear as sleep starts to cloud your conscious thoughts. Strings and voices seem to trail off into nothingness, the sort of unfinished logic your brain starts to accepts when the dreams start.
