More Music from the Linger Playlists

So, unbelievably, it is now 8-some weeks away from Linger's release day (and I'm revoltingly happy to report that I will indeed be doing a launch day event in Williamsburg, VA, details to follow). And it's a Friday. That means it's time for some more music from the playlists. It also means it is time for my washing machine to die, apparently. It made that sound from Monty Python's Search for the Holy Grail ("the castle of eeuuuuuugggghhh") and just stopped. I am bitter.

Anyway, two songs this week as well. One that represents Mercy Falls to me, and another which will forever be associated with a certain section of the book (thanks to Editor MixTape for that one.) These are also two songs that I didn't like right away -- it was only after several listens that I really liked them. It'll be interesting to see the verdict from you guys.

As always, if you love 'em, go buy the tracks from legit places and support the artists. Make me happy. Hope you enjoy!

"Rock of Ages" - Gillian Welch

And "Out Come the Wolves" - Jacob Golden.

Linger Playlist Songs: Again With the Opposites

Soooo. It is now 9 weeks-ish away from Linger (unbelievable!) and it's Friday, so have some more songs from the Linger playlists.

I was going to write about how Isabel and Grace are opposites in Linger, in many ways, and how their music from the playlists reflects this, but I think you can pretty much read my post about Cole and Sam and just insert "Isabel" and "Grace" instead. Suffice to say that they're very different people. And also I think you guys can tell that my musical tastes are pretty far-ranging at this point. Basically there is something to offend or please almost everyone in my music collection.

Okay. Music. The usual applies: if you love it, go to iTunes or Amazon or your local sketchy music dealer down the street who keeps CDs in the pockets of his cargo pants and buy it. Support the artists, etc.

Anyway, so for Grace, we have "Almost Lover" by A Fine Frenzy.

For Isabel, "You'll Find a Way" - Santogold. 

Man. I can't believe it's 9 weeks until Linger is out. Summer is coming like a freight train.*

*Why does that expression exist? Every freight train I've ever seen is always this sludge-like thing that holds up traffic for years.
