Music for Dreams. What music do you sleep to?

The majority of people probably wouldn’t entertain the idea of listening to anything to drift off to, however I feel it helps me get a decent nights kip the majority of the time. I only tend to listen to music on a mellow horizontal level when getting ready to hit the sack and predominantly it will be material I am very familiar with. Below are my 3 go to albums to dream to. What are yours?

Raul Lovisoni/ Francesco Messina - Prati Bagnati Del Monte Analogo (Pete Gooding brought me here. This is incredible Sci Fi ambient minimal perfection)

Kuniyuki Takahashi - Early Tape Works 1986-1993 Vol 2 (Music From Memory Label)

Paul Fitzgerald & Mark Flanagan - Quiet water (recently reissued on vinyl, this is an absolute beauty)

Tom Middleton has done a couple of albums for sleeping too. They’re both good.

Occasionally a slow r&b mix if im on substances of some sort

Jeff Bridges Sleeping Tapes is a great one for drifting off to. Isle of Jura included a track on their latest Comp.
The idea and charity behind the release is very worthy too. The dude certainly abides!

agreed, this was my #1 of last year

This is bliss. Up there with my favorites of last year for sure

Balsams by Chuck Johnson or Goodbye to Language by Daniel Lanois & Rocco DeLuca are ones I go back to. Lap steel seems to do the trick for me. Steve Roach and Harold Budd are good too. But sometimes I just listen to recordings of heavy rain fall.

Pastoral English countryside feels. Sparks me out everytime
