Many authors are creating Spotify playlists to go along with their novels to really get a full immersive experience.
We think these book and album pairings were meant for each other. See if you agree!
Sea Monsters by Chloe Aridjis and Joy Division's Unknown Pleasures.
"Pulsing to the soundtrack of Joy Division, Nick Cave, and Siouxsie and the Banshees, Sea Monsters offers an intoxicating portrait of Mexico in the late 1980s."- Catapult Publishing
The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates + Seeds by TV on the Radio.
The distorted sounds of TV on the Radio and Coates' magical realism are a match!
Blacktop Wasteland by S.A. Crosby + Damn by Kendrick Lamar.
A Visit from the Goon Squad by Jenny Egan + Mezzanine by Massive Attack.
The Only Good Indians by Stephen Graham Jones + Master and Everyone by Bonnie Prince Billy.
Bonnie Prince Billy emenates the "plaintive hopefulness" of Cass. The overarching sense of dread found in this horror/revenge novel is executed perfectly in the song "horses".
Deacon King Kong by James McBride + The Essential Earth, Wind & Fire.
I Almost Forgot About You by Terry McMillan + The Tour by Mary J. Blige.
Life is short- don't let people play with your emotions! A healthy dose of self-confidence never hurt anybody!
One Last Stop by Casey McQuiston + The Essential Daryl Hall & John Oates.
Mexican Gothic by Silvia Moreno-Garcia + Crackle by Bauhaus.
The dark bass-heavy goth sounds of Bauhaus pair perfectly with the menacing feeling of Silvia Moreno-Garcia's Mexican Gothic.
Daisy Jones and the Six by Taylor Jenkins Reid + Rumours by Fleetwood Mac.
Let's face it: Daisy Jones is essentially Stevie Nicks. Same vibe, same style, same taste in men.
The Rap Year Book: The Most Important Rap Song from Every Year Since 1979, Discussed, Debated, and Deconstructed by Shea Serrano + Me Against the World by 2Pac
Annihilation by Jeff VanderMeer + Document by R.E.M.
The Martian by Andy Weir + The Definitive Collection by ABBA.
Sorry, Mark Watney. I had to do it!
