The visionary duo of The Books have a new record coming out soon, and to whet their fans’ appetites, they’re premiering a heavy dose of upcoming tracks on their fall tour. Featuring the synesthetic pleasure of minimal sound pastiches accompanied by found video collages, the group‘s three-year hiatus since Music for a French Elevator seems to have been fruitful, as the two are playing some of the most well-known venues across the U.S., bringing their ponderous and infectious pieces to old and new audiences alike.
