About this playlist
You can really lie down calmly with this playlist and get lost in its music. Abundant with low dynamic songs rich with emotion and artistic expression. These are songs you’ll really feel. Songs that will grab your attention via your heartstrings. The goal here is to actually be fully engaged in the music. Instead of using low-key songs as background music, use them as a form of meditation by listening completely.
No genre is off limits here but it tends to lean towards deep songwriters, mellow soul-jazz vibes, and tracks with a soothing timbre. From warming instrumental swells like “In Galaxies” by ELWD, to rare, intimate solo performances like “Midnight Lightning” by Jimi Hendrix. Or blue synth ballads like “Watching Him Fade Away” by Mac DeMarco to the earthy, world music colors of “Mahjoun” by The Derek Trucks Band. Each artist, song, or album delivers it’s own particular approach to relaxing the listener. Hit play and just melt.
