The Books – A Cold Freezin' Night

Ever wondered what the outcome of a collaboration between The Avalanches, Vampire Weekend, and retro vhs humorists, Everything is Terrible would represent itself as? What do you mean ”pfft no”?

Mixing samples of angry homicidal children telling you they’re ”going to rip your hair off, asshole”, to minimalist tropical beats, is surely the next best thing to the 5 minute rise and demise of glo – fi. Remember that?
