No matter how "depressing" shoegaze and dream pop may seem, it seems to put me in a better mood. This is a rainy day playlist; if you can't be outside, may as well give this one a shot. It just might make your day.
Eighteen tracks including music by Adorable, My Bloody Valentine, and Slowdive.
You wanna get spanked with a glowstick? This is a dirty minimal-tech hose-whatever mix.

May playlist, dedicated to the Nelsonville Music Festival in beautiful Southeastern Ohio...four days of blissful rock n roll and the best people ever.
In 1989, the Beastie Boys released their second album, "Paul's Boutique", a sonic collage of a whopping 105 song samples put together by the Boys and their producers, the Dust Brothers. It eventually became what many consider to be one of the greatest albums ever released.
Sadly, the world lost Beastie Boy Adam "MCA" Yauch on May 4, 2012. As a tribute, let's revisit the epic "Paul's Boutique" and mix up a healthy selection of some of the original songs later sampled on this masterpiece.
19 tracks that when I first heard them, they made me LITERALLY stop in my tracks...or maybe not literally, but I was touched enough to google the lyrics or shazam the song...God bless musicians, where would we b without them?
41 of my favorite tracks of the year...it's REALLY long, I know, and I won't be offended at all if you don't listen to the whole thing.
Music by Sturgill Simpson, Against Me!, Lydia Loveless and a whole lot more.
An exhaustive list of some of the most beautiful and honest acoustic songs out there to lift your heavy heart, but softly and sadly.
“But I have calmed and quieted myself, I am like a weaned child with its mother; like a weaned child I am content.”
Further explorations into new avant-garde and free jazz, some old favorites, a humble appreciation of Julius Hemphill, plus a FREE 20-minute bonus track at the end.
Funky up front. Way out in the back.
Includes the music of Mary Halvorson Quintet, Marty Ehrlich's Rites Quartet, and Julius Hemphill.
This is the first part of a new series I'm doing that will showcase extremely talented drummers in different genres of music. This 13 track playlist is full of high-energy jazz songs with incredible drumming and plenty of solos. Artists include Return To Forever, Steely Dan, and Herbie Hancock.
My first mix. I owe 8tracks. 3/4th of my music comes from you jerks. Snowy day mix. Slow enough to make you cry, but upbeat enough to make your booty shake.
Iggy Pop, Kasey Chambers and Martina Topley-Bird.
three months ago i bought a plane ticket, packed a bag, and moved to the other side of the world. watching the seasons change as a stranger in a new place is the most beautiful thing i've experienced yet.
over 4 hours of epic music to accompany you as you read or write that beloved fantasy novel… for each hero(ine) must embark on a quest to new realms in order to discover who they truly are…
“Long ago I yearned to be a hero without knowing, in truth, what a hero was. Now, perhaps, I understand it a little better. Every person is a hero if they strive more for others than themselves. Once you told me the seeking counts more than the finding. So, too, must the striving count more than the gain.”
The perfect instrumental study mix (minus an awesome medley at the end) for all of your final needs. Be whisked away to the happiest place on earth... even if you are physically still in your dorm room cramming for that test. Who said studying couldn't be magical?
Looking to be constantly adding to this playlist so leave suggestions in the comments below!
The French know something about wine …. and apparently about how to open wine bottles too. No corkscrews needed. Just a shoe and a few delicate taps.

"When I left the control room, everybody was moved, was excited, most of the people were crying. People are more, yeah, they have difficulties to believe that it happened, so, but we are very busy, the control team is busy in checking the situation, stabilising the situation, so they won't have much time to think of the historical moment - they have to work," head of ESA operations Paolo Ferri told journalists after the landing."Signs continue coming, of course the scientific experiments will start a bit later, but the measurements for the instruments which were already active - and they are already active now - are coming," Mr Ferri added.
Published on 25 Aug 2014 On iTunes now! itunes.com/mariacallas Box set out 22nd September, available to pre-order now: http://smarturl.it/maria-remastered Warner Classics presents the most ambitious and extensive project ever undertaken in the name of the Maria Callas catalogue: a revelatory remastered edition of her complete recordings. The dedicated sound engineers of Abbey Road explain how they have unveiled the voice of Maria Callas in greater clarity and depth than ever before. They also speak with one of the diva's original engineers from the 1950s and 60s, Robert Gooch, whose reaction to the remastered recordings is touching.
Unlike Beethoven's Sixth, which leaves little doubt as to their subject with babbling brooks, singing birds and summer storms, the musical images arise in Vaughan Williams indirect. The horror, the demands Walton, was the participation in the First World War for Vaughan Williams. Only in 1938, 16 years after the completion of the work, the composer revealed the great influence that his war experiences had taken in France on his Third Symphony. The declared pacifist had there, voluntarily served with already 42 years as a paramedic. Powerful images »Vaughan Williams' music conjures up images vast landscape," says Norrington during a rehearsal break last June. "But it is the scenery of the First World War, a landscape, have suffered infinitely in the human. The music is not programmatic, but very vivid - and she has four slow movements. At first this may sound boring, but it is incredibly touching. "His imagination helps Norrington going to keep the tension to work out a development in four slow movements. How four seasons, so he told them act on it. Starting with a serene summer, followed by a plaintive trumpet player in the fall, probably blows to his own funeral - incidentally, the only real quote that brought the composer from the war. The third set represents Norrington for the winter, clear and white, the horror graciously be obstructions. The fourth then the spring, which always is otherwise a fresh start, but here only a bleak Call to nowhere -. According to all those who will never recur These are strong images, and they represent an intense and exciting music in all seriousness an elegiac, almost unearthly beauty and exudes tranquility.
