With their songs created for Bushwick Book Club, BBC founder, Susan Hwang and BBC contributor and producer, Charlie Nieland, have joined forces as the literature-inspired duo—Lusterlit. Susan and Charlie have been playing and recording their songs about books together for years. They formed Lusterlit to present the songs they’ve written for BBC as a band and to make fully produced recordings (HOPEFUL MONSTERS,EVERYTHING IS SATEEN: FIVE SONGS INSPIRED BY VONNEGUT & LIST OF EQUIPMENT), alternating lead vocals and harmonies while supporting each other on guitar, bass, piano, synth, traditional Korean drum, accordion and more. Besides playing regularly in Brooklyn, Lusterlit has toured the West Coast of the USA several times, including Bushwick Book Club events with Chuck Palahniuk in Portland with his latest book, LEGACY: AN OFF-COLOR NOVELLA FOR YOU TO COLOR and now, this spring in Los Angeles, with Jonathan Ames and his latest, YOU WERE NEVER REALLY HERE.

Lusterlit has created a double-A sided single, their ode to Ames‘ new pitch-black novella/film, with 2 songs, the twisted pop of Rolodex and and the relentlessly dark River, available now on BandcampSpotifyApple Musicetc. and on vinyl 45, courtesy of BrooklynphonoBoth feature their cinematic blend of electronic and acoustic textures: vintage beatboxes, swirling guitars, Korean drum and sublimely layered vocals, all mining Jonathan Ames‘ noirish page-turner for more inspired songcraft about books.
