It’s one of my favorite days: music sharing day.
Here are 11 instrumental albums I am currently using to “get things done” (one of them is free if you look hard enough).
At the end of the post, I want to hear yours. Enjoy!
|Hammock: Departure Songs
If there's one instrumental album you purchase this year, this has to be it. Loaded with massive soundscapes that will leave you breathless. Seriously incredible.
This is one of my favorite bands across all genres.
|Rhian Sheehan: Seven Tales of The North Wind
This guy's music has really been surprising me lately. Beautiful sounds ala Hammock with a nice classical influence.
|Rhian Sheehan: Standing in Silence
Again, beautiful. This album includes some fantastic electronic beats. Not to be missed.
|Brian McBride: The Effective Disconnect
If you like to sleep to music, this is the album. Sometimes I put it on and forget it is playing. Minimal and beautiful.
Anything by Helios is absolutely wonderful.
In addition to this album, check out their most recent, Moiety, which is a FREE download:
|M83: Hurry Up We're Dreaming
While not completely instrumental, something about M83 fires me up. There is a ton of great synth music here.
|Sigur Ros: Valtari
You know I had to include a little Sigur Ros. There new album here is very unique to the others. Very low key and minimal. I was expecting the music to explode at times, but it remains patient and steady. A soothing listen.
|Jonsi: We Bought A Zoo (Motion Picture Soundtrack)
My favorite movie soundtrack. Probably ever.
|Olafur Arnalds: Living Room Songs
A recent discovery of mine. Love this guy's minimal, neo-classical sound. Beautiful strings and piano, taking you on a journey. Gorgeous.
|Explosions in the Sky: Take Care, Take Care, Take Care
When some of the other instrumental music puts me to sleep, I go to Explosions. Still atmospheric but with glimpses of bombastic energy. Essential.
Question: What are your “getting things done” music choices? I always look forward to this. Let the recommendations fly.
