When I hear music that I often listened to when reading, I tend to 
remember those stories ("state-dependent memory"?); for me Miranda Sex 
Garden's _Fairy Tales of Slavery_ perfectly evokes the mood of TBONS, 
with the possible exception of one song in German.

I don't mean to imply that this might explain other people's 
associations, since
a) lyrical content may match too well to be coincidental, and
b) it's likely that the reading and listening occurred at different 

but synchronicity--meaningful coincidence--isn't enough, for me, to 
evidence informed intent.

REM's "The End of the World as we know it" is a famous example in debate 
circles, with debaters claiming that the band members went to a debate 
tournment, listened to the arguments being made, and wrote the song 
("tournament, tournament, tournament of lies").  I'm skeptical, but--and 
this applies to Lupine music as well--even if the link isn't true it 
*ought* to be.
