#STATIC Playlist by Eric Laster
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. 
Bonus Playlists: Eric Laster Curtis Brooks Rick Calvados Suzy Painter

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.
