Paul de Jong
You Fucken Sucker

Best known as one half of folktronicists The Books, Paul De Jong has a nice little side-hustle in the form of his solo material. His follow-up to 2015’s IF augments the lustful experimentalism of The Books with the wide-ranging yet clear-headed aesthetic of an auteur. There’s r&b, spoken...view item »

The Way Out

Aw man the Books are back! I got completely obsessed by The Books when Lost & Safe came out. I couldn't put their records down! 5 years later comes 'The Way Out' on their new home Temporary Residence!

The Books
Lost And Safe

The Books come & save me. Books always save you. Full of wonder, mystery & intrigue, every page is a revelation. Like this strange, clanky, dusty & timeless band on Tomlab.
