For several years in my adolescence, I listened to strictly electronic music. I've met alot of people with autism spectrum disorders who have been attracted to this kind of music as well. I don't know if there's anything to it, or just the times I live in and the people I meet.
Anyway, electronic music eventually progressed to hip-hop, and the two went back and forth. I only got into rock a little bit, and usually I was attracted to bands that used alot of keyboards, electronics and unusual instrumentation.
When I must have been in seventh grade or so, I heard a song called "Science and Space" by a kid name Jonah Dempsy AKA Revolution Void. I spent years trying to pin down who he was so that I could get a copy of that song. Today, about eight years later, without even trying (isn't that always the way it is?), I found Dempsy through his blog, where he is provided much of music for free.
It's all pretty chill and perfect for reading, thinking and writing. Sometimes words are distracting and I come up with no better solution to a distracted mind that the best electronic music.
