The Books - That Right Ain't Shit

Just a bit of folktronica for you today. Well, I say just but there was considerable joy to be found in the music of The Books. The duo of Nick Zammuto and Paul de Jong made music that was equal parts Squarepusher and Penguin Café Orchestra. That Right Ain't Shit from The Lemon Of Pink (2003) sounds like a glitchy harpsichord warming up and getting into groove. The interlocking rhythms seem to mesh so tightly that the warm swells are inevitable. And then, just like that it's gone, leaving nothing behind but a fond memory and a backward glance.
