#STATIC Playlist by Eric LasterBonus Playlists: Eric Laster Curtis Brooks Rick Calvados Suzy Painter
I myself can’t read well and listen to music simultaneously—my attention bounces back and forth—and I’m tempted to say that people should, when reading #Static, focus on the music of the prose! But since this probably seems a bit much, I suggest listening to something atmospheric: long songs whose themes take a while to develop, if they develop at all; with no lyrics or at least very little. My specific recommendations are a bit esoteric, but they are: Brian Eno’s Ambient 1: Music for Airports, and anything by The Necks or Endless Boogie.
Stop by Twenty Three Pages tomorrow for the next stop on the tour!

When Curtis Brooks starts receiving phone calls from his older brother Wilt, who’s been dead a week, he’s sure it’s to help him find evidence that will lead to a murderer’s arrest. But Wilt claims he wasn’t murdered; his calling, meant to help him adjust, is standard protocol for newly deceased at the Aftermart—a kind of inescapable, ever-expanding Walmart filled with discontinued products. Wilt’s death ruled a homicide, Curtis embarks on a dangerous plan to find the killer, which soon has him scheming against a billionaire and floundering toward love with his brother’s ex-girlfriend Suzy, all while struggling through high school and his single mom’s poor choices. Why does Wilt help Curtis win over Suzy, even as he organizes a rebellion at the Aftermart? Who’d wanted him dead? Curtis risks his life to answer these questions, in the process forging a bond with his brother unlike any they’ve ever had.
