In March BBC Radio 6 Music had a birthday party. In April we partied harder celebrating dance culture. Now, having had a bit of a rave, it's time to return to the comfy armchair of life and have a good read. BBC Radio 6 Music Celebrates the Written Word and this week Jo Good, in for Nemone, gets a little bit Gatsby about the whole thing.

Discover, relive and get under the skin of the music that New York electronic band School of Seven Bells consider their favourite songs in Most Played. Plus songstress Sharon Van Etten drops in mid-tour to talk music, and books in the Record Exchange.
