When in doubt: go ambient

Posted: September 23, 2010 in Music that makes me happy

That’s what I say.

It’s a pissy, rainy Thursday, so what better way to soothe that SAD with some melodic, eclectic, uplifing chillout. The added bonus is all (well most) of it’s not taken directly from ” Ministry of sound * insert year here* ” It Includes stuff from:

The Cinematic Orchestra

The XX

The Deadbeats

Paul Weller

Bombay Bicycle Club

FC Kahnua

Dirty Vegas

Skinny

Phoenix

And More. I’ve decided to eloquently and originally call it Thursday Chill 230910

Right now I’m listening to Skinny – On A Beautiful Day – an exquisite track with some nostalgic samples from ‘Daydream’ by Wallace Collection (which you’ll probably have heard sampled by iMonster in the more modern version “Daydream in Blue”)
