Sounds good

Reaktion is delighted to announce a new music series, 'Reverb'. Books in the series offer new insights on the distinctive character of music made in a particular place – how Nick Drake's beguiling folksongs are associated with notions of Englishness, for example, or how the exuberant rock of Van Halen is rooted in the Beat, Zen and romantic movements of 70s southern California.

Series editor John Scanlan has a blog with more information about the series, together with gleanings from the music world. To read John Scanlan's blog please click here.
