ambient pop chill music

For fans of composer Arvo Part, early Tangerine Dream, Popul Vuh, Flying Saucer Attack, Bardo Pond, SciFlyer, Starflyer 59, Klaz, early Sufjan Stevens noise experiments, Philip Glass, The Weird Weeds, Coastal: the minimalistic chill out drones of...


My Tarentel #1 playlist:

* Every Possibility the Next Thing to a Certainty
* Blessed/Cursed (edit)
* Beat Song (live)
* It's in you right now, just get still, think about it, I am light-filled
* Wheel Within a Wheel
* Put It On the Ground
* Hello! We Move Through Weather
* Get Away from Me You Clouds of Doom (live)
* Golden State

This is what I'm listening to right now, at track "It's in you right now...". Very sluggish, slow, lethargic background music for Christmas present wrapping or computer typing.

Music slowed to a crawl, gentle waves of drifting tone zones, with a few abrasivities mixed in low here and there.


If Thousands

Shoe-gazer: (soothing or exciting) self-absorbent sounds. Classical-electro-chill pulsations. Far more melodic and "musical" than the drone dirges of Tarentel. This band is ambient jazz/muffled industrial minimalism with frequent big reverberating echo guitar tones.

My IF THOUSANDS playlist:

* With a voice as big as a tree
* twelve into none
* io
* traffic
* with all the saints
* to shine on him one last time
* your weight
* The Daylight & The Sun (from Silber Records mp3s)

(I downloaded everything off this page. Mostly mellow type reverby murkiness and slow guitar soft rock.

Both bands present dreamy, melt down music for unwinding or rewinding your worn out self late at night while the children sleep and you wrap gifts, or rap online with your friends via Google Talk/VOIP, IM, blog comments, email, wikis, chat rooms, web forums, email discussion lists, or texting.

I think you'll find this Free, Legal mp3 downloadable music to be just the thing to soothe your tired nerves and frazzled bones and tangled muscles.


Yule thank me later, gator!

P.S. More gentle guitar/vocal music at The Rivulets mp3s:
