«Just putting these up on here so I’ve got them all in the one place. It’s more for my sake, really.» (©)
anything by Arvo Pärt, Bing & Ruth’s Tomorrow Was The Golden Age, Brian McBride’s The Effective Disconnect (he’s from Stars Of The Lid and it shows), anything by The Calm Blue Sea (wonderfully stormy instrumental rock, in the spirit of Explosions In The Sky), Flying Lotus’ Until The Quiet Comes (cluttered and zingy, but fun), Metavari’s song “Pacific Lights” played over and over again (has non-distracting sampled dialogue, and also a harp), Nathan Salsburg’s Affirmed (lilting, horse-racing-themed solo acoustic guitar), Nils Frahm’s Screws (slow, gorgeous solo piano), Riceboy Sleeps’ self-titled album (an ambient project from Adam Somers and Jonsi of Sigur Rós), the Latvian Radio Choir’s Rachmaninoff: Vespers (Deceptive Cadence-approved choral music) and Angelo Badalamenti’s Twin Peaks soundtrack (though sense memory makes me think I’m studying for finals in college).
