My ability to listen to music has shifted, and I suspect some of you will identify. Loud rock is fatiguing and confusing, and stuff with lyrics is too distracting. Has your experience been similar? What do you listen to these days?
I've been finding the ambient and downtempo albums at Ektoplazm wonderful for relaxation. (The difference: ambient has no beat, downtempo has slow beats, though in reality they blur into each other). It's laid-back, spacey, dreamy and legally free.
(All their other genres are loud, fast and clubby, so be careful you stay in the right category or get someone else to prelisten).
