Top Chill Out Music | Week 36 (10 Vibes) 2013


As we enter September, and the nights start to draw their way inwards, it's an ideal time to dive beneath your duvet with the one that you love, and enjoy this week's chill out music. Thank you to those lovely Curators who helped us out with this week's picks from David August, Tim Hecker, The 1975 and many more. If you think that you've got what it takes to be a Curator, click here. (Artwork by Sam Li.)


The 1975 “Menswear”

The intoxicating “Menswear,” aptly written from the perspective of a wedding guest “on the verge of passing out,” is our favorite track on The 1975's eponymous debut album, out this week on Dirty Hit.


Tim Hecker “Virginal II”

Drone pioneer, Tim Hecker (is anyone else desperate to type Tim Heidecker?) is back in October with Virgins. Check out the debut single, “Virginal II,” which builds apprehensively towards a synthgasm.


F∆UXE “Slow Driving”

Triangles are BitCandy and Alt J's favorite shape, which must explain why we all really like F∆UXE, who evokes the crisp air, endless highways and sheer euphoria of late night drives in this latest track.


Charles Murdoch “Light Words VAO (Feat. Steffaloo)”

You've already heard “Dekire,” the first cut to be taken from Charles Murdoch's debut EP, Weathered Straight. Now take a listen to “Light Words VAO,” featuring adorb Los Angeles chanteuse, Steffaloo.


Heathered Pearls “Beach Shelter (Sun Glitters Remix)”

Next week, Heathered Pearls will unveil Loyal Reworks, made up entirely of remixes of tracks from his debut album, Loyal, and bringing together producers such as Nitemoves, Teen Daze and Sun Glitters.


David August “Blossom”

David August's Time is one the most talked about debut albums that you haven't heard anyone talking about. “Blossom” is arguably the most accessible track on the record, available in full at Soundcloud.


TWOS “Seriously (Shlohmo Cover)”

Enigmatic producer, TWOS, has uploaded this beautifully ephemeral cover of “Seriously” by another favorite producer of ours, Shlohmo. Snap up a free download, then listen to the original over at 'Tube.


Kill Frenzy “Stay Gold”

Vocal samples wash gently over a skittering beat in “Stay Gold,” the first track to be unveiled on Kill Frenzy's imprint of the same name. BitCandy's all over Frenzy's reworking of Whitney Houston, too.


Simon Fisher Turner “Makalu”

Makalu” is taken from Simon Fisher Turner's soundtrack for BFI's definitive restoration of The Epic of Everest, the official film record of Mallory and Irvine's ill fated Mount Everest expedition of 1924.


Chouchou “Teardrop”

Have any of you guys heard of ASMR? If not, have a read dang it. As everything about “Teardrop,” from the gentle sounds, right down to the hypnotic accompanying visuals, is giving us brain tingles.


Ghost Loft “So High”

The video for “Tunnel Vision,” apologies, “So High” featured in this week's Best of Indie, and we're yet to come down from the trip. Take our advice. Soak up the vibes of this track at 3 in the morning.


That's it for another week, love hearts, but we're back with the top chill out music, next Friday. Before you get back to snuggles, don't forget to leave any suggestions for next week in the comments, below.
