For Paul de Jong – the innovative composer and cofounder of beloved collage-pop eccentrics, the Books – that societal frustration was compounded by a series of unexpected and frightening personal turns. His new album, You Fucken Sucker, is an uncompromising and overwhelming statement; an uncanny (and sometimes uncomfortable) reflection of our collective mental excess. Presented in the exact sequence in which it was conceived, You Fucken Sucker charts a route of personal tragedy and emotional fatigue, and the loss and eventual retrieval of the illusion of control.

Paul de Jong, former cellist for the Books, uses his debut solo album IF to return refreshed and willing to reveal sides previously overshadowed. The cello was merely an instrument in the Books’ work, but here it becomes its own character. Featured Tracks: Play Track. Auction Block" - Paul de Jong Via SoundCloud.

The album impressively demonstrates de Jong's accomplished musicianship as well has impeccable knack for sound design and mischievous sense of humor, although fans of the Books might miss Zammuto's pop melodicism and vocals.

The Books were an American-Dutch duo, formed in New York City in 1999, consisting of guitarist and vocalist Nick Zammuto and cellist Paul de Jong. Their releases typically incorporated samples of obscure sounds and speech. They released three critically acclaimed albums on the German label Tomlab, and released their fourth studio album, The Way Out, on Temporary Residence Limited in July 2010.

Paul de Jong is best known as the cofounder, cellist and resident found sound savant of the beloved, defunct collage-pop duo, the Books. Five years after that band delivered their final album, The Way Out, to much acclaim, de Jong delivers his first solo album. IF sets the Books' early albums (particularly The Lemon of Pink) as a starting point, and elevates that beguiling sense of wonder and amazement to genuinely transcendent new heights
