Drunkard's Rock wanders around for a really long time.
The Sounds of Places plots countries as if they were genres.
Every Place at Once is an index of the distinctive listening of individual cities.
Genres in Their Own Words maps genres to words found in their song titles.
The Needle tries to find songs surging towards the edges of one obscurity or another.
