I feel like it's been awhile since there was a mu essentials chart, anybody up for making an essential sleepytime list?
Gonna get this out of the way real quick so nobody can try to be funny by posting it.
OP here, if this gets going I'll start compiling everything into a single picture
How do you guys feel about This Will Destroy You's self-titled? I know it's pretty generic crescendocore but I"ve had some GOAT-tier naps to it before.,
If anybody has any objections to stuff people have posted go ahead and dissent.
This didn't really click for me sleep-wise
Gonna include some recording of this, it has to be in there
Also, there should definitely be an Eluvium album but I don't know which one. Any suggestions?
One of my favorite sleepytime albums, just listen to this.
Hell yeah man. Heh actually, got a DL link for that?
Also OP here, and I'm running out of stuff from my library to suggest. Throw more things at me guys!
I'm on the fence. This one can get a bit weird at times. I've actually been sleeping to Born Into Trouble lately, how do you guys feel about that one?
Good point, added.
I'll add it for now but if people are like "what the fuck man" I'll take it off
another favorite of mine, ambient/folk stuff, Rameses III- I could not Love you More
Yep, have this album in a playlist I fall asleep to regularly
Nominating this album, very lush blissful ambient
??????? - ??????
Don't know the english name.
the boats are the ultimate in sleep assistance, they need to be on this chart
this is objectively the best sleepytime album
i think you meant to post this, friend
I'm gonna need samples before I go throwing some heiroglyphics on the chart
Great recs, added.
Should we be more picky about what we add or should this be an essentials chart that just keeps on growing? I vote for the latter, personally
I think if you had an essentials chart for this that never ended you would just have a big list of ambient albums, which isn't a bad thing, but once you reach a certain point you should probably refine it. I donno, tho, it's up to you
True. I think I'll go the refinement route.
I'm most on the fence about Radiohead (too much energy), Set Fire to Flames (lots of weird non-musical stuff), and Silver Mt. Zion (weird and sometimes not too easy to listen to)
When I think of sleepytime music I think of stuff that's just really nice to listen to while you're nodding off. Nothing that will make you think too much
Lucid dreaming is a really complicated thing and I don't think an album alone would make you lucid dream. It's possible it might play a part in triggering whatever it is that needs to get triggered to lucid dream though.
I think what I'll do is this. We'll fill up the chart I have now, and sometime tomorrow I'll post and people can discuss what to remove/add
And with that, I, OP, am going to sleep. Will probably listen to The Boats because damn I like this a lot.
I'll post again tomorrow, probably a little earlier than I did tonight (maybe midnight CST) and we can discuss what to keep/add/remove.
Night mu, sweet dreams!
Also one last thing, I'll probably add more space tomorrow. 25 seems a bit small for something as blanket as "music that's nice to sleep to. But, that's more stuff to discuss tomorrow
Honestly, id sleep with Block too, but i dont think this will suit everyone.
What the fuck, why is Somnium missing? It's actually the most obvious choice
no Steve Roach on there, that really ruffles my petticoat.
