The Longest Road (Deadmau5 Remix) – Morgan Page (feat. Lissie)

24 Jun

I have finally, FINALLY finished all of my exams. Thank goodness. After four in three days, I was ready to jump off a cliff. Having finally rid myself of urges that on another day might have led me to believe that I was a lemming, I can now provide you with a stream of glorious tunes.

(More) Sounds That Are Helping Me To Stay Alive: A(nother) Downbeat Electronic Playlist to Wash Your Stress (Even Further) Away

14 Jun

I have been under the radar, but you’ll have to excuse me while I finish off what ranks among the worst weeks of my life. I thought I’d lift my head out of a book just long enough to give you the second part of my playlist full of relaxing tunes that manage to counterbalance my hair-pulling stress (to some extent). I really enjoyed writing the last playlist post because it was actually refreshingly easy to compile a list of songs that I love, and that I’ve been listening to recently. The hardest part was finding a picture to go with the post, and it was a similar challenge this time. So, like any struggling image hunter would, I’ve gone with a feline DJ. Time to sit back, relax, and here we go…

Angels – Clams Casino

7 Jun

Great. So right after I post an absolute bible of relaxation, Clams Casino goes ahead and releases another album full of instrumentals that would have easily made it onto that post, thus undermining the entire idea of it being the best chilled out playlist post. Oh well, better late then never I suppose. This new stuff is… well… incredible.

Sounds That Are Helping Me To Stay Alive: A Downbeat Electronic Playlist to Wash Your Stress Away

5 Jun

My apologies for not posting as often. As we’ve stated a bunch of times, our exams are just starting to get really intense, and while I wish I could plop myself down on my sofa and keep you satisfied with a never-ending flow of new tunes, it is sadly impossible. It might just be that some of you readers out there are students also, and you happen to have important/life-changing/future-determining exams coming up. Or you’re just stressed about the end of the school year. Either way, I thought I’d give you a brief rundown of the songs that have been helping me stay relaxed and focused throughout this tough time. Enjoy.

The Way U Do – Shlohmo

31 May

Nothing big for today, I just wanted to share a lovely little song that has been playing off my laptop constantly and helping me get through my studying. Off of Shlohmo’s EP, Vacation, this song is another quietly gorgeous track to add to his growing collection of gems. Take a listen:

Hurricane – MS MR

30 May

I feel like it’s been a while since I’ve fallen in love with anything that has female vocals, so when I heard this I was suitably amped that my female tune drought had come to an end. This has been on repeat for the last twenty minutes and it’s just not getting any worse. If you knew me in real life I would give you a serious look and tell you to listen to this. Because we’re in the internet world, all I can do is tell you that your life will be better if you do, and that you can send me a nice thank you message if you do enjoy it. “Welcome to the inner workings of my mind…”

Till We Die (feat. Nina Kinert) – Tomas Barford

29 May

By golly, I’ve seen some smouldering looks in my time, but Danish producer Tomas Barfod surely takes the cake with that stare. Why so moody Tomas? I don’t know, must all be part of the image. Anyways, have a listen to Till We Die.

Allein – Pryda

24 May

I’m finally off school and feel like celebrating! Here’s a song that get you in a mood to party with me, even though I have to go right back to school tomorrow in order to finish my art coursework. It feels like the work will never stop, and it most probably won’t. It’s probably a good idea to learn that now.

Bright Lights – Gary Clark Jr.

22 May

I am so close to school ending that it is teasing me. There are two days left until I am free to, well, work all day every day. Exciting isn’t it, that old life of mine. Anyway, the track that has been driving me through these final days that seem to go on forever is Gary Clark Jr’s Bright Lights. Continue reading

Doused – DIIV

16 May

I don’t think any human has ever been as tired as I am right now. Of course I don’t champion lazy journalism, but this isn’t lazy journalism. This is exhausted, drained, brainwashed,  I-have-an-exam-on-Friday journalism. I love you, but I cannot for the life of me muster the energy to give you much information about this song.
