Playlist – 【☆sweet dream☆】(●UωU).zZZ : A Quiet Friend

In my final semester of college, I had a free form radio show where I would focus on a specific theme every week, usually depending on my mood. Usually it was mostly a blend of indie rock, but occasionally I would go heavy on one particular theme. One week I did a full metal show (which inspired my last playlist, My Black T-Shirt) and one that was more calming, in an effort to ease listeners on campus with midterms and other worldly troubles.

This was in 2015 – a much simpler time. I thought now that everyone in the world that’s struggling would like to have a quiet friend to accompany them as they drifted off to sleep, one to walk with in an overstocked supermarket, one to have fill the room during a rainy day, and one to bring you back into existence after feeling like a bit of a smear on a lens.

I’d like to think that the songs I included here aren’t just completely brainless background tracks that anyone could find on a recommended “PEACEFUL SLEEP AMBIENT CHILL” playlist, but more things to put on that occasionally grab you with a sour note, an interesting refrain, or a blessed harmony. The playlist should flow in the order I’ve listed, so if possible, please refrain from putting this on shuffle. I playtested all of these friends myself, not an algorithm. I hope that makes a difference.

Are there any tracks that you think would fit swimmingly with this polite group of friends? Let me know! I’m always looking for new, welcoming bodies in my life. Hope you enjoy.
