The whole Inception soundtrack is awesome.
Lately I’m obsessed with Serj Tankian “Imperfect Harmonies” and with (500) days of Summer OST.

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:

I <3 music alot.

^^ 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.

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!

‘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 :)

Hey Hallie, Zero 7 is an amazing band. Destiny is beautiful, not to mention ‘In the Waiting Line’ and ‘Distractions.’ Didn’t like the newest album as much but it’s still good

John Frusciante’s body of solo work outside of the Chili Peppers raises feelings of exploration, questioning, and divinity. Check out Unreachable from the Empyrean.
