Calm seas never made a skilled sailor
Crashing, ebbing and flowing, your mind is as temperamental as a tempest. The swells of life, rising and falling, sway your soul while you ride it out on a raft in a sea of your own reflection. Quiet and serene, like crisp blue waters of non- tidal beaches, this week we bring you a playlist of comforting songs you will drift in and out of but will always love. Crafted to help guide your wayward thoughts through miles and miles of reflected sunshine, these sounds come in rolling sets, worthy of repeating 20 times over. Swirling with simple acoustic guitar lines and complex stormy beats, the tracks are swimming with lyrics plucked straight from your own waves of contemplation.
We asked our friends Emmy and Hope from Don’t Need No Melody/80N7 to help us curate this week’s ruminating mix. They find the freshest lo-fi gems out there long before they become popular. With the trained ears of those swell gals picking half the songs, our playlist includes more swell genres, artists, and music for you to fall in love with.
So hoist your sails and wait for the sets of sounds to come and carry you away.
