Murder by Death on Creating the Finch Soundtrack

I’ve interviewed Murder by Death for Omnivoracious, asking them about their reading habits, touring, and their work on the Finch soundtrack–which you can sample in the sidebar of this blog. My favorite part of the interview might be this bit:

Adam: …The fun part was trying to think how a mushroom sounds. Since we didn’t use lyrics, we had to communicate all the ideas through music and the feel of song. We decided a vintage Fender Rhodes had the best overall tone for “mushroom”.

(I’ll be checking in at Omni from time to time during my book tour to report on my adventures.)

    I haven’t tried listening to this while reading Finch, yet, but I did listen in the car and it is very hypnotizing and atmospheric. I think at one point I saw spores in the air!
