The Books "A Cold Freezin' Night"
This latest number to drip off the long-awaited new album from NY sample aficionados The Books seems to be an exact counter response to the first taste from The Way Out, "Beautiful People." That track is something like a soothing-but-upbeat love song written for mathematics, but "A Cold Freezin' Night" is a bit more like a pre-pubescent reenactment of the intro to Wu-Tang's "Method Man" set to an unheard Residents or Primus track. It's a darkly playful song that simultaneously showcases The Books' funky and humorous sides, and effectively proves the duo is anything but a one-trick pony. (via FADER)
