Mtftsb: calming music


#1

I’ve been a bit haywire today. got this on repeat atm, though, and it’s doing the trick.

“you can always come home”

and the gentle synth pad w/trickling synthy keys or whatever

please post stuff like this, thx. or other kinds of songs that calm you down.


#2

always this guy for me, listen to him almost every day


#3

Obvious one but


#4

The Spirit of Eden album by Talk Talk is very calming


#5

and also


#6

on the contrary, that particular video in the OP has actually riled me up


#7

I like to listen to Message to Bears if I’m ever particularly stressed or have loads to do at work as I find it calming.


#8

this album is I want to feel calm and happy

this album if I want to feel calm and depressed


#9

Been listening to a lot of Harold Budd in preparation for his gig recently


#10

didn’t watch the video I linked to, just found whatever the first one was for that song

what’s up with it? is it all wrong?


#11

yeah, no sound :frowning: tried a few other youtube links for it and they all seem to be like that for some reason


#12

Yeah fucking weird. I found it on Spotify though:


#13

licensing, huh


#14

this songs probably a bit naff to everyone but its helped me in some tricky times


#15

I was scared to say I couldn’t hear any sound in case this was some massive setup for a @ma0sm / @JohnM style joke


#16

there’s one of his I like the most… think it’s this?


#17

#18

that last Robert Wyatt record. just really warm and sinking into the floor type vibe, his voice is so open. not enough clarinet albums about.


#19

I’m not very good at being a cheeky scamp like either of those two. but hahaha, silence, very calming!

good joke, if that’s what I’d meant.

some nice responses so far :cloud:

^ a cloud because looking at a nice bit of sky is also really calming
