MOBY’s Porcelain Playlist: A Memoir Soundtrack

From one of the most interesting and iconic musicians of our time comes a piercingly tender, funny, and harrowing account of the path from suburban poverty and alienation to a life of beauty, squalor and unlikely success out of the NYC club scene of the late ’80s and ’90s. Moby has had his fair share of trial and error but has come out on top. We couldn’t be more excited to have this icon at our store Sunday, June 19 at 2PM to speak and sign Porcelain: A Memoir.

Moby was even generous enough (and cool enough!) to create a list of songs (download them all here) to go along with the book:

“The music in Porcelain is almost as important a character in the book as I am. To that end I’ve compiled a collection of songs written about in the book, both my songs and other people’s songs, in a little time capsule to accompany the book. These songs all remind me of the New York that I lived in and was smitten with from 1989 – 1999.”
