The other day I was browsing the interwebs as you do and I stumbled upon a song called 'Weightless' by Marconi Union. It is an eight minute song that is meant to slow down your heart rate as it plays. I listened to the first minute of it and sent the Husband a text asking him if he wouldn't mind downloading the song for me onto my phone. When I got home he surprised me and told me he had bought me the entire album. He loaded it up onto my phone for me and the next day on the bus home as I was feeling a little frayed from a long day at work I decided to pop in my ear buds and hit 'play'. I fell in love, and then I fell asleep. True story. The songs on the album which is titled "The Ambient Zone by Just Music Café Vol. 4" are so darn relaxing it actually made me drift off to sleep while I was on the bus - luckily I woke up in time to still catch my stop and didn't end up at the bus depot. I was surprised by what a calming effect the music had on me - I literally felt all tension and anxiety slip away. My favorite songs on the album are Weightless, Sense and Radiant. If you are looking for some music to mediate to, relax to, fall asleep to, or simply unwind to I would seriously recommend this album - it's amazing what music can do for us.
If you are interested in purchasing the album, or individual songs you can find them for sale here.
