Three Quiet Mixes for Sitting by the Side of the River ...

Three Quiet Mixes for Sitting by the Side of the River ...

… while the body of your enemy floats by.

Good Morning tapes for LN-CC

You might want to lie down for this one. Or sit comfortably on a seat or a cushion, with a straight spine, chest forward and chin parallel to the ground. This soothing mix by French cassette label “Good Morning tapes” for LN-CC has a pattern of sound waves that slowly expands, like ripples across a pond, while you and your thoughts remain at the middle.

King Midas Sound for The FADER

You might want to grab a tissue for this one. When you’re sitting alone by that river, it’s not always going to be peace, love and birds chirping. Sitting and watching your ego crumble and slip into the stream can be a complex experience. This “echoes of solitude” mix by King Midas Sound for The Fader Magazine never looks away, weaving drone, ambient, poetry (by Charles Bukowski) and Leonard Cohen together into a sound tapestry full of cracks (that’s where the anxiety gets in).

Man-dee : Music for sitting in the park

You might want to share this one with a friend. Like the first mix on this list, this “Music for … sitting in the park“ doesn’t mind straying into guided meditation territory from time to time. Only this time the birdsong gets processed through synths, there’s less piano tinkling and more digging into the kind of crates that hold FSOL classics.
