Giddy up.

This is easily one of the strangest, most beautiful albums I've ever been fortunate enough to stumble upon. I can't help but say, "This is your mind on drugs." Just listen to "Bonanza" and "Explanation Mark," two little ditties of nothing but senseless murmuring. Or are they? Each and every song on "The Lemon of Pink" is gorgeously-arranged. Elements of trippy folk, oscillating electronica, and random vocal phrases coagulate to form an auditory experience the likes of which I've never known. "Tokyo" is my favorite tune on here. The babbling mandolin and pulsating background textures unlock a brand-new quadrant of my brain every time I listen to it. "The Lemon of Pink II" is a work of acoustic genius. I can only compare it to Bibio's "Vignetting the Compost." If you've been desiring another level of consciousness altogether because your current one seems rather inadequate, then this is undoubtedly the album for you, my fickle friend. Ciao.

Eventually, with some urging by Tom Steinle of Tomlab Records, they created what would become their debut record, Thought for Food, in 2002. Within a year, the Books relocated to Hot Springs, NC,...
