The Books "Music For A French Elevator And Other Oddities"

Music For A French Elevator And Other Oddities
CATALOG NUMBER: trr206
RELEASE DATE: 15-10-2013


While supplies last, we are offering this very special limited-edition vinyl-only double album, Music For A French Elevator And Other Oddities. Originally available as a part of the hugely acclaimed, super-deluxe A Dot In Time. box set, Music For A French Elevator compiles all of the Books’ non-album tracks into one fittingly surreal package befitting the group who essentially created their own genre (often reluctantly described as “collage-pop”). A total of 45 tracks are here, including standouts and longtime favorites “Classy Penguin,” “8 Frame,” and their sublime Nick Drake cover “Cello Song Feat. Jose Gonzales.” Along with their commissioned pieces for the 1% art and sound installation in the Ministry of Culture in Paris, France, the collection includes the Books’ unreleased film score for the feature-length Biosphere 2 documentary, a stellar collection of counterpoint electroacoustic explorations that emanate the kind of wry charm and wit that became a staple of the Books’ music. Packaged in an impeccably designed die-cut jacket w/ metallic inks, this collection proves that even the Books’ non-album material is worthy of emphatic celebration and adoration.
