New Books in Music and Sound Studies


Please list, discuss, recommend new books in sound studies, music studies, media studies, etc. There doesn’t seem to be anywhere that collates new books on music/sound and its hard to keep track of what’s being published…


Here’s all the Duke UP stuff published in 2019 so far:
-Book Reports: A Music Critic on His First Love, Which Was Reading

-Mack Hagood, Hush,


-Steingo & Sykes (eds) Remapping Sound Studies, Duke UP 2019

-Chow and Steintrager (eds) Sound Objects, Duke 2019


-Eidhsheim, The Race of Sound: Listening, Timbre, and Vocality in African American Music


This is a great idea. Thanks for setting this up
