Words & Music

Vibe by: 

It's been said that writing about music is as silly as dancing about architecture, but these books challenge that medium-policing conceit. In a time when we can't go to shows or symphonies and listen to music together, it's a great opportunity to catch up on your music reads. Whether it's fiction that centers on musicians and/or musicality, or histories and bios of musical artists and scenes, all of these books will have you putting together playlists to enjoy alongside them.
