Sunday Music: The Books

Right now I'm missing one of the coolest artists to hit Chicago this year, The Books. I didn't jump on tickets quickly enough, and they sold out. Normally, I'd hang out at the venue and see if I could scare up a ticket, but I have out of town guests, anyway.

Almost too sweet for the label "avant garde," the New York-based duo's music rests at the intersection of electronica and folk, using layers of samples to create strange little sound paintings.
