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)
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!
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.
