The Books – A Cold Freezin’ Night

Listening to a an old Portishead mixtape they put out right before an I’ll Be Your Mirror event they curated in 2011, I came across a track by The Books I totally missed out on.

“A Cold Freezin’ Night” is comprised of scraps of two children talking into tapes, a boy and a girl, and we daresay it expresses burgeoning feminist anger—the boy, untethered and proud, screams about “a cold freezin’ night” triumphantly, while the girl, miserable with rage, sighs, I wish I was a boy, in addition to delivering a short uninhibited treatise Valerie Solanas could totally get down with. –

The track premiered on Fader back in 2010, but is still available for download. Oh, Boy.
