Emil’s bandmate Alex Hall from Grails and Lilacs & Champagne is in town from Berlin and they deliver an introduction to “Library Music”… The term goes back as far as the twenties when stock music began to be composed to accompany the first films that included sound. Television companies were able to avoid copyright issues by sourcing music from ‘music libraries’ and the anonymous players who provided the music were often some of the best in the world. Because the records were never available to the public, Library Music looms large as one of the secret troves of great composition and execution in the world of record digging and sampling.

Holy Sons continue their tour with the Japanese band Mono at the Music Hall of Williamsburg tonight!
