This mix is themed around feeling content with life and finding happiness and joy with what we have. It speaks to me and other people who go through life chasing one goal after another, forgetting to cherish the moment. Inspired by a dream of mine to take a cross-country trip through green fields and beautiful scenery on a quite train, this mix is the would-be soundtrack of that trip.
And for first time ever, I have created a full HD music video for this mix. Inspired by the overall laid-back style of a weekly radio show called Quitemusic, this mix is my attempt at replicating this feeling through a fine selection of tunes from different down-tempo genres.
In this mix, I also started experimenting with shorter tracks edits to keep the mix varied and interesting. Sight Adam Rogers. Of Song Marcus Strickland. Form Danny Grissett. Reverence Kendrick Scott. Dali in Cobble Hill Clarence Penn. Almost Never Was Zach Brock.

The initial innocence and the taste of freedom and expression were wonderful combined with the intoxicant of youth, but within another year the scene would degenerate into excess, hard drugs, scam artists, and eventually poisonous politics.
Despite the chaos of or perhaps because of it, Baxters would be the masterpiece of Jefferson Airplane. It stands with "Piper" and "Sgt.
Pepper" and the other great albums of Recording began May 22nd making "Baxters" the product of the craziness of that summer. It was recorded mostly in the middle of the night by a band trying to turn their previous album on its head. With the success of Pillow the band had nearly complete carte blanche to do whatever the hell they wanted without concerns about the commercial potential, and they were smart enough to realize such attitudes among the suits would not last, so they made the best of it.
The album was pretty much written in the studio without central planning, mostly by Kantner, the band bursting with creative intent and fueled by copious amounts of hallucinogens But it mattered not While it's true that the album was experimental and ambitious, what makes it a masterpiece is something much simpler: "Baxters" was change mostly unsullied by cynicism and dysfunction.
While true that darker topics were entering the writing, by sheer luck, magic, or something else, this is the album that listeners can inhale to experience life, joy, sunny June morning dew on the grass, children laughing, first kiss innocence. For the band descent had already started via egos, factions and cocaine, but for the listener the album captured a moment that could always be held tight.
These feelings were not only a San Fran thing. Young people everywhere would soon feel a longing for escape. All these years later the escape wasn't all it was cracked up to be, and what was seen as old fashioned has in some ways been redeemed. Still, one has to hand it to the musicians for leaving such documents of the period.
This masterful rallying cry of chaos begins with an erupting bit of feedback before the "Pooneil" track becomes a textbook example of what Grace could do with her voice. The multi-vocalist approach was so instrumental in Airplane's vibe, Grace's sultry and powerful wail, Marty's smooth and comforting piece of the puzzle.
It is a bit silly and indulgent as its critics charge and yet it works perfectly in the concept of this album. You have to remember, this is not an album to play here and there while running errands. This is a piece that is to be savored in its entirety when you have time to shut out the world and dissolve into it. Marty was feeling marginalized by this point, being openly ridiculed by Jack and Jorma for his "square" tastes.
Sadly his only writing contribution here is the lovely "Young Girl Sunday Blues" which is probably the albums most "normal" track. It turns into "Wild Tyme H" which famously finds the band exclaiming proudly "I'm doing things that haven't got a name yet. He would become very enamored with the Cream approach which would lead he and Casady to Hot Tuna. Loosely based on Joyce's "Ulysses" Slick twists the lyrics and takes them different places, while coming up with some of the Airplane's most interesting recorded music.
With the guitars mostly quiet she conjures epic dreaminess and fantasy with her voice and piano, utilizing disjointed sections, some eastern influences, and "discordant, brooding, ominous chord sequences" aptly described by Airplane biographer Jeff Tamarkin Got A Revolution - The Turbulent Flight of Jefferson Airplane. On Halloween the singers were not around, so the future Tuna and Dryden set about laying down what became the 9 minutes of pure improvisation known as "Spare Chaynge.
After Grace's witty "Two Heads" the album closes with Paul's tribute to "acid, incense and balloons" at the park. Baxters is one in a series of triumphant albums by this great American band, your favorite will depend on your tastes. Already a deviant? Log In. This is brilliant PS she says her name is Marilyn.

Wowzers, fantastic work. They all fit the target audience for the film. The real surprise, however, is the score, which was composed by guitarist and producer David Torn , who has been writing for film and television since While his incidental music doesn't compare with his more formal recordings, his combined use of electronic and organic instruments even when they evoke the sounds of 80s electronic pop, offsets the other sounds presented here; his eight set pieces hold ambient and melodic beauty, as well as some tension and drama.
