Let It Be (feat. Veela) – Blackmill

3 Jul

Ah, nothing like a night in the freezing cold English countryside to help you forget about your city problems. Having (not really) slept on the floor of a dusty old barn, the 2 hour car journey home needed music that would be enjoyable for bleary-eyed teenagers. Fortunately, Blackmill was there to save the day.

Pyramid Lake – Hiatus

29 Jun

Recently, I have been missing this man’s music in my life. I absolutely loved his Ghost Notes EP. Hiatus has a knack for blending heart-wrenching melodies with softly profound backings that when combined form something truly incredible. I urge you to listen to his latest offering after the jump.

Fraulein – Haleek Maul

28 Jun

Back to rap. Oh how I have missed you. Here’s something really cool: Barbadian rapper Haleek Maul is only 16 years old and has just recently released Oxyconteen, an EP that can be described as dark and insightful. He’s 16. That was me two years ago, jeez.

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.

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…”

a2 – Ólafur Arnalds & Nils Frahm (Max Cooper Remix)

3 May

Okay so the other day I stumbled upon something really, really beautiful. No, not Mila Kunis (although I can still dream). I was paddling around and surfing our beloved internet when I discovered a quite frankly gorgeous Max Cooper remix.

Cannons – Youth Lagoon

14 Jul

Youth Lagoon (aka Trevor Powers) has shot into the spotlight after releasing two amazing tracks on his bandcamp page. Both July and Cannons are available to download for free. I have chosen to write about Cannons mainly because it was the first song of the two that I heard, and fell in love with. Ladies and gentlemen, this is beautiful, soaring electronic at its absolute finest:

The harmonies in this are beautiful, not to mention the actual melody itself. If you listen, you can almost hear it shimmer. This song is bursting with the sunny days and late-light nights of summer, and I will definitely be playing it over the next few months. Head on over here to download Cannons absolutely free of charge.

Forever – Casey Veggies

3 Jul

Another one from the Odd Future crowd, Casey Veggies released his CD for free on his site. Instantly, Forever stood out to me. Recently a lot of this hip-hop (especially from OF) has really been ticking the boxes for me, and if you like this, you should check out Frank Ocean if you haven’t already. Anyway, here’s Forever:

This is an awesome song to chill to, and I love the dialogue at the beginning. Who doesn’t have those times where your eyelids automatically close during class and you are struggling hard to stay awake. The best part is that you can download the entire CD here for free.
