Music to write depressing fiction to.

It’s not often I end up coming across an artist whose music just sucks me out of my slumber and puts me in a mood. It’s been a while, anyway. These days I’ve been listening to a lot of dance-y stuff to get me out of the whole winter blues thing, but this winter hasn’t been all bad, and then the other day I discovered Exitmusic. I wasn’t aware that Aleksa Palladino was not just an actress, but a rather fine musician as well.

I’ve kind of fallen in love, which is kind of nice since she was killed off Boardwalk Empire and all.
