Soundtrack to the Apocalypse

Don’t just read about the apocalypse, give it a listen as well!

While you’re busy honoring artists for their work at Bandcamp—and you must be because the site seems to be overloaded—check out this list I made for them a few years back, when maybe I was the only one thinking about a desolate Earth. This is selected ambient music that comes out of the concept of sounds left behind when humans are gone, a companion this post.

For more books to read while you’re cooped up, get Annalee Newitz’s Scatter, Adapt, Remember

And A Canticle for Liebowitz, one of the greatest novels of the 20th century
