Music For Happy Listening Vol. II

Hello guys! So I decided to make a second list because there were either albums I felt wrong not incorporating last time or I found new stuff I enjoyed since that time. Once again, these are primarily ambient/slow tempo/relaxing listens. If that's not your thing than that's cool but I still obviously encourage you to check some stuff out anyway! Like last time, there is a decent amount of recent/2015 stuff here. I put a link to a bandcamp/youtube stream if possible and will let you know if anything is "name your price." List is in alphabetical order. -If any links don't work, please tell me.-
