EP // Black Books – An Introduction To…

Finding a way to make a familiar genre ring at a compelling frequency can be just as impressive as bending and blending existing forms; Black Books, from Austin, Texas, are perhaps closest in sound to the band My Morning Jacket, although they are airier. Comparisons aren’t really to the point, here: their sole release, the EP “An Introduction To…”, available on bandcamp, should hook one immediately with the massive, not terribly subtle, exceedingly catchy opener “The Big Idea.” The three subsequent tracks are all quite good as well, even if they do feel like echos of the first song.

Here, have a listen.
