MP3 OF THE WEEK: GoodBooks – Hiding Away mp3

“He never quite recovered since his son brought the boyfriend home, he only ever wanted an heir to his heir, to sit on the family business throne, his daughter found a man with a turban, while travelling in India, and maybe that’s what finished him off”

Until now, GoodBooks have had many fine tunes but they’ve only had one masterpiece and that was a song called ‘Passchendaele’. It was recently re-released as a single and I found their second masterwork ‘Hiding Away’ tucked away on the B-side. It’s the sad story of a widow whose domineering husband has died and how she finds herself all alone in the world. Max Cooke’s chilly falsetto glides over minimal glacial beats while successive layers of instrumentation build in power and intensity.
