Thanks to Mike, I discovered the completely gorgeous ‘Twelve Fold Chain’ by The Books. I can go either way with that moody, whispery indie style — sometimes it’s too faint, or fragile, or just…nice, for me — but this one has plenty of depth. I also love its production; for some reason, all its shuffles and clicks give it an edge that I like, and creates a lovely dual sense of place — while the song itself feels quite metaphysical, it also sounds like it’s happening in someone’s bedroom. I’ll definitely be seeking more from The Books.
And that’s a wrap! Thanks for reading; it’s been fun.
