Collages of Music and Memory

by The Books

Lost and Safe by The Books is one of those collections of tracks that is filled with details and snippets that start to make more sense the more that you listen. It’s important to be in a fairly quiet environment as well, but even then it has been surprising to me as I’m never sure if what I’m hearing is in the recording or around me. A sometimes very musical mix and at times experimental, it can be strangely recognizable and opaque at the same time. It’s a wonderful collection of elaborate sonic journeys that I enjoy taking.
