Sarcastic Coffeecup Posted January 15, 2017 Share Posted January 15, 2017 There's a good few people here who are depressed on various levels. Post the stuff in here that you either listen to while you are down or stuff that makes you feel down or calm. I'm not necessarily looking for ultraenergetic songs that sing about depression and things crawling in your skin, but rather, auditory beauty or low moods. I'll start with a couple of albums and songs. Ulvesang gets top spot with its cover embed. Very chill acoustic melancholy music. Sort of similar, Musk Ox brings instrumental melancholy a new twist with the addition of violin Very moody, funereal sounds of Ulver (not to be mixed with Ulvesang above) fit my moods very well. Used to be a growly black metal band, and now....something entirely else. Swaying towards the faster side, but still slow, Kilimanjaro Darkjazz Ensemble is what you get when you combine jazz and very moody themes. On the more classical side, rather aptly named Endless Melancholy is alright too with its pretty piano melodies and although it's not always that sad, it fits melancholia decently enough to warrant a listen. On a slightly weirder note, I found this one song to be a real downer, in a good way. Their songs are either a hit or a miss, and to be honest, most miss, but this one hit the spot. Similarly, Death cab for cutie. Hits and misses with its overly pretentious themes and/or lyrics often, and feels a bit forced, but this one fucking song I've got memorised because of how much I relate to some of the lyrics. Thus far I haven't included electronica, because most of it is very upbeat or the likes, but there are gems hidden in there, such as this masterpiece. Here we have weapons grade cuteness. Her voice and these sad songs... It's one hell of a mix. Last but by far not the least, my fave band of all time, Gazpacho brings artsy prog to the scene. Stunning work all around, and works with or without a low mood. So, what are your picks? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
