Indie rock / ambient lullabies
October 22, 2013 7:36 AM Subscribe
I like to listen to music while I fall asleep, and I'm in need of some new material. I don't care if there are lyrics or not, but preferably nothing prone to making one rather emotional. I'd rather avoid New Age (no Enya, please!) and "space music."
Here are some things I often sleep to:
-Brian Eno's "Music for Airports" (this is my go-to)
-Pop by Gas
-Nepenthe by Julianna Barwick
Sometimes I'll try Sigur Ros, Aphex Twin, Boards of Canada, or Global Communication, but those can be a bit distracting.
When I'm really, really tired and need coddling, I listen to Hafdis Huld singing Icelandic lullabies.
