The Collapse (Hipstopia's sequel) Playlist and Updates!

I finished the first edit of The Collapse (The Uprising #2), the sequel to Hipstopia.  I am quite pleased with the results of the first edit.  I added 4,000 words, established more tension, filled out some characters who had previously been lacking.

Something that I've always wanted to do was create a playlist for a book.  I write to music.  Music creates a certain mood that I would have trouble emulating otherwise, and I think each list of songs speaks volumes about the characters.  They are such polar opposites in feel and style - much like the characters themselves.

Hate Dept. "New Son Army"
Hate Dept. "Hard Times"
Pigface "Insect / Suspect"
Filter "The Inevitable Relapse" (Clayton Worbeck Mix)
UNKLE "Ghosts"
UNKLE featuring Gavin Clark "Blade in the Back"

Jason (Jay)
Miike Snow "Animal"
Slighter "Stood Still"
The Neighbourhood "Sweater Weather"
Broken Bells "October"
Bonobo "Cirrus"
The Naked And Famous "The Sun"
Passion Pit "Take a Walk"
Radical Face "Welcome Home"

Murphy's music is raw, powerful, and angry - just like him.  Jason's music is pensive and melodic with just a little bit of bounce.  I encourage you guys to check out some of these songs!  Go on, you might find your next favorite.
