I love music! It is a huge part of my writing process. I know there are some people that need silence to write, or listen to instrumental music because lyrics distract them, but I need a certain level of distraction to be able to write. I’m going to be featuring some of my favorite writing playlist authors and bands here on my blog.
I have been doing a lot of editing recently on Awake: A Sleeping Beauty Story and the first band I am featuring, while great for writing, is insanely awesome for editing. There is something about them that emboldens me and I definitely need to be a bold editor!
Thrice is an “alternative-modern-rock” band from Irvine, California. They’ve been together since 1998, but I am the first to admit that I am a much newer fan. Sometimes I am just late to the party. Their newest album Major/Minor is mind-blowingly good. There is not a skippable track. I’ve added it to my very short list of “play through” albums. Although I am obsessed with Major/Minor, all of there albums are great. There are seven others:
Identity Crisis (2001)
The Illusion Of Safety (2002)
The Artist In The Ambulance (2003)
If you are super hip and cool (or Luke Reed from my novel who only owns a turntable), you can even get all of these albums in vinyl.
For your viewing pleasure – a video!
Oh, how about another one . . . just for kicks!
