Song of the day September 2021: Relaxation time

The summer is ending and school/work/whatever is about to start in full swing again. Our lives will be full of business and stress once again and we are going to need some help! This is why the theme for this month is songs that help you unwind. This could of course be calm ambient piece, but it doesn't have to be! It could also be an energetic pop song, some jazz, maybe black metal. Just anything you would personally put on to unwind after a busy day and forget life for a while. Here the google doc link

September 9 - porcupinetheather
"In the Beginning"

t's from her Mandarava Rose album. She dropped several records in the early 2000s under her own name as well as Greenpot Bluepot and they are all magnificent but just when you start to relax she'd clatter something loud in your ear and start manic chanting and it would be like a mini night terror. Not on this one. She came back after much time away in a more ethereal state of mind. Nothin' but pure solar ambibliss this time

"Dreaming of Love"

As they say, "quiet masters of atmosphere, subtle craftsmen who weave a sumptuous, melodic spell with the lightest of instrumental touches".

"Through the Looking Glass"
14Nobuo Uematsu
Final Fantasy X: Original Soundtrack

September 14 - Sharenge

it's listed incorrectly under Nobuo Uematsu - he was actually one of three composers who worked on that particular game... the song I share is actually by Masashi Hamauzu
15School of Seven Bells

September 15 - Aberf
"Half Asleep"
16Tigran Hamasyan

September 16 - DivergentThinking
"The Apple Orchard in Saghmosavanq"

Beautiful combination of jazz and Armenian folk, and one of my favorite pieces that Tigran Hamasyan has composed

...Keyboard Fantasies...

September 17 - Skoop
"Ever New"
18Elis Regina and Antonio Carlos Jobim
Elis And Tom

September 18 - Minushuman
"Águas de Março"

This track for some reason reminds me of my time overseas, it is such a simple lovely track, and I can't help be feel happy hearing the overwhelming sense of fun in Elis's voice. An absolute gem
Hvis Lyset Tar Oss

September 19 - garas

September 20 - Slothcoresam

Přítel Člověka

September 28 - someone'

a beautiful song from a Czech underground band still active today. very melancholic comparison of swallows travelling great distances "over large mountains, over deep oceans, above treetops, through raging blizzards" and always have some place to return or to move, while you (or the authors) realise that they do not. your hometown, your once loved ones, your family, your friends and all that you at once point or another see as stable; all things become misplaced, forgotten, moved around and your connection to them dwindles. nobody really has a place to go and we are cursed with always searching that somewhere, something, someone we can count on to always welcome us back. unlike the swallows
