News – Fall Music Preview: Electronic – A Closer Listen

Plenty to look forward to here……

a closer listen

To dance is to forget one’s problems and to underline the vibrant nature of life.  Our Electronic Preview points in the direction of the club, but even if one can’t get out there in public, there’s always the living room, the lawn, the car.  Let’s say you were a robot beached on a distant island.  Wouldn’t you still have a locked groove in your electronic heart?  We know we would!  The best beats of the season are waiting to be discovered in the largest of our five fall previews.

Our cover image is taken from Peter Brown’s The Wild Robot, one of the finest YA books in recent memory.  A sequel, The Wild Robot Escapes, will be published next spring.  For more on Brown and the Wild Robot series, visit his website here.
