Playlist Series Vol. 2

Music for spacing out and focusing
Welcome back, week two baby. I read somewhere, a long time ago that the second week of trying to form a habit is always the hardest so we’re breaking the cycle. This is a fun exercise and I’m still beyond stoked to have worked with everyone on these initial lists. A big thank you to this week's contributors.
The sharing or exchanging of playlists or mixtapes is such an amazing but lost form of romance and one of the most archaic forms of sharing music. We wanted to connect with our readers and attempt to bring back that feeling of intimacy between two or more people that has been lost within music sharing. We will release these once (maybe twice?) a week. Maybe we will put these on physical tapes? Seems like a good idea.
If you’d like to contribute a playlist please fill out this >> form << and we will reach out to you with a theme.
We’re still looking for contributors, send us an email, DM, smoke signal. Please just get ahold of us.

This week’s playlist theme is music for when you’re spacing out/focusing and the contributors are musician Michael Ralston of The Materialistics/Ekulu and Digital Future contributor AJ Torres. Enjoy!
Upon learning that the theme to base my playlist on was “spacing/zoning out” there were many songs and bands that came to mind. I tried to whittle it down to include a (somewhat) diverse collection of songs and artists, without entirely honing in on a specific genre. These are the types of sounds that put things on pause, leaving me not wanting to move from one spot, or adjust my gaze from whatever fixation has captivated me. There are some obvious choices, as well as some songs that probably only subjectively could be likened to “zoning out.”
Nonetheless, I hope that whoever listens to this collection of songs finds some sort of comfort and can slow down and “zone out” in a society where moving fast is the norm.
