I am so very excited for the Fever Ray show coming up at the end of the month. I had a semi-religious experience at The Knife show a few years ago. Hoping for a repeat Jesus sighting.

So, yeah….this video is insanely creepy.

So, it’s past your bedtime. You’re getting home from a party. You want to wind yourself down while maintaining that good feeling that you had from the night. Perhaps you met a really nice girl or maybe a really nice guy. Maybe you just had an awesome time with some of your best buddies? Or possibly just met some really cool people? Whatever it may be… nothing works better than some good music.

These are supposed to be listened to in order…

First off some good instrumental hip-hop-
Ras G & The Afrikan Space Program- Brasillain Dimes

Then some electro chill-out funk-
Dam Funk- 10 West (sidenote: Is everything this guy does just so damn good or what? No wonder he has that name.)

A little dabbling in some psych-electronica-
Harmonia- Watussi

Some indie rock electronica to pump you slightly back up-
Animal Collective-My Girls (sidenote: I think this might be in my top ten songs of all time.)

And then some Eno, to start the soft descent-
Brian Eno- And Then So Clear

Some dreamy distorted vocal stylings to bring the thinking on-
Expensive Looks- Shy Away

Now, the dreamy song that’ll help you ease your way home-
Ulrich Schnauss- A Letter From Home

Here’s the one that’ll really help you go into a trance-
Underworld- Banstyle + Sappy’s Curry
