BEST CHILL OUT MUSIC - WEEK 48 2013

11/29/13
Best of Indie Chill

As I'm writing this, it's Week 48 of 2013. 4 weeks left of this...weird 2013 year. Has the year '13 been lucky or unlucky for you?  Did you get that promotion? Did you get into that college? Did you "go for it" in your relationship, or confess your love for the one person you secretly admire? (I did that this week...I'm not sure how it went.) Did you lose weight, get more sleep, be more productive? Well, 2014 is just around the corner to better yourself. And on that note, you'll have to watch out for the BitCandy app that's forthcoming. Because...

We're always trying to better ourselves at BitCandy, so on that note, I won't keep you from the most beautiful best chill out music this week has had to offer. BTW...In our future app, you'll just have to click play and listen to everything in a continuous stream.  Yay! Anywayz...On to the chillwave.

 

LEAKS - OFTEN IT'S YOU

WTF? Leaks is none other than 19 year old, Thomas Guida from Melbourne Australia. Thomas, you're the kinda of person I hate to love being so frigging naturally talented. :)  

 

POSTILJONEN - SUPREME (HNNY REMIX)

In case you didn't know, Postiljonen are Daniel Sjors, Joel Nystrom Holm and Mia Brox Boe from Stockholm, Sweden. I don't expect you to remember those names. But as far as chill out music goes, I expect you to remember Postiljonen. This is as good as it gets.

 

MARVIN GAYE - SEXUAL HEALING (KYGO REMIX)

BAAAAAAABEEE! Nice beats, but still chill, enough. And somehow this track recently topped the Hype Machine. But is it just me or is the Hype Machine getting super tired? I went there today to see what was buzzing and was thoroughly disappointed. But then, maybe i'm pissed off that Anthony decided not to include BitCandy in the Hype Machine feeds. Hmm, I wonder why? I'll take it as a compliment Anthony V bite me.

 

N U A G E S - WAIT (via Curator, Duffster)

Our BitCandy Curator, Duffster brings us this dreamy piece from N U A G E S who has all but 658 fans on his/her Facebook. And that's exactly how we like to roll at BitCandy...bringing you the best that no one else is talking about yet. 

 

PERSEUS - SHADOW OF THE BEAST (via Curator, Uncle Flex)

This one is one the fence of being a top chill song, as the tempo rides a little higher...but as a track it best fits in our post here rather than our best indie songs post (which you really should check out). Thanks also to Uncle Flex, our BitCandy Curator that turned us on to this jam.

 

ACTIVE CHILD - TAKES ME BACK

Active Child (aka the genius also behind Ellie Goulding's "Hanging On") brings us a new track with "Takes Me Back," interpolating Mister Mister's "Broken Wings." Hey Pat, I hope you checked in with Richard Page on that one.

 

APHEX TWIN - NANOU2

Just reminiscing about the incredible Aphex Twin album, Drukqs, way back from 2001. Richard James...wherever art thou? I highly recommend checking out this album...12 years old but still massively fresh, manic and beautiful.

 

WHEN I SAY I LOVE U (SAUX REMIX)

Keep a close eye and heart beat on Shy Girls. They're our pick to explode next and this Remix from Saux is another reason why our love continues to be verified.

 

JMSN - THE ONE (STWO REMIX)

OK maybe not so much a chill out or chill wave song than a nice, sexy slow jam here to have a nice intimate sexy slow dance from JMSN. Is he the next more cool and tasteful Justin Timberlake?

 

HAERTS - WINGS (SHLOHMO REMIX)

Yes, it's a wonderful creepwave remix from Shlohmo taking on HAERTS and their song "Wings." This is the perfect type of song for metropolitan 3 a.m. landscapes...especially with an intoxicant.

That's what we have for you on this week's post. Remember that it's never too late to change, or to do something risky, or put yourself on the line. If it all blows up you can always come back and regroup. Preferably with some good music. See you next post.
