Need recommendations for non-distracting music to listen to when working, preferably instrumental but it doesn’t have to be if the vocals aren’t too intrusive. I’ve tried listening to 65daysofstatic and other post-rock while working, but it’s too intricate and in-your-face to be good concentration music.
I really like Bonobo’s Late Night Tales mix and I find that I can get on pretty well with that in the background, so similar albums/mixes would be good, or stuff like Tycho/Bonobo’s actual albums.
These days while I work I find I need ambient/drone-ish artists:
Motion Sickness of Time Travel
If the work I’m not doing is not too taxing and can be done breezily, I might up the temp for some Kiasmos. But that definitely induces the bopping-one’s-head-while-sat-working-at-a-computer-terminal look which … well, you need a lot of i-don’t-give-a-fuck to pull that off.
