Music For A French Elevator And Other Oddities

$20.00

While supplies last, we are offering this very special limited-edition vinyl-only double album, Music For A French Elevator And Other Oddities. Originally available as part of the hugely acclaimed, super-deluxe A Dot In Time. box set, Music For A French Elevator compiles all of the Books’ non-album tracks into one fittingly trippy package befitting the group who essentially created their own genre (often reluctantly described as “collage-pop”). A total of 45 tracks are here, including standouts and longtime favorites “Classy Penguin,” “8 Frame,” and their sublime Nick Drake cover “Cello Song Feat. Jose Gonzales.” Along with their commissioned pieces for the 1% art and sound installation in the Ministry of Culture in Paris, France, the collection includes the Books’ unreleased film score for the feature-length Biosphere 2 documentary, a stellar collection of counterpoint electroacoustic explorations that emanate the kind of wry charm and wit that became a staple of the Books’ music. Packaged in an eye-popping die-cut jacket w/ metallic inks, this collection proves that even the Books’ cast-offs are worthy of emphatic celebration and adoration.
