One of the most beautiful songs I have heard lately is a remix of the theme song from Inception. Here’s a link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Se5NBKNcsy4
What songs/artists do you love?
All of the songs ever done by People Under the Stairs. They’re a hip hop group, but not anything like the bullshit on the radio, they actually make good music. Anyone who likes music and wants to listen to some real hip hop, check them out:
Oh, and I bet alot of the people on here would enjoy Mark Farina’s “Mushroom Jazz” series. He mixes trippy/jazzy/hip-hopesque beats and some songs with vocals into hour-long seamless music mixes. A couple songs in the mushroom jazz mixes:

^^ Matt, have you heard of The Sea and Cake, or Dinosaur Jr.? Judging by some of the artists you posted (Animal Collective, Arcade Fire, Phoenix, Sufjan Stevens) you’d probably like them. You’ve also got a little hip hop in there, so def check out People Under the Stairs.

-Jordan: Don’t Lose Your Head is another favorite, but I’ll have to check out The Bay
-Lucas: Have you checked out the new Cake or Cage the Elephant albums yet?
-Ben: Yup Zion I definitely knows whats up
I’ve only listened through it a couple times so far, but my first impression is that its AWESOME. Its classic Cake, but at the same time its got this sweet jazz/funk flow throughout the whole thing. Definitely download it!
I second Xavier Rudd- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uE0b9XzrjeE

Sooo many more, but this is what I’m jamming to today.
‘destiny’ by zero 7 has always been my number one chill song. and by chill, i mean it stops me in my tracks and i can’t do anything except sit there and listen to it. THAT is what music should be, either that or make you dance a lot. either one is awesome. haha :)
