    The War on Drugs - Lost In The Dream
    Makes you feel like you're about to embark on an epic road trip in the way Dire Straits did when you were a kid.

    πŸ‘†πŸΌThanks! Our review...
    Actually listened to that last week, followed by the new Kurt Vile album. An excellent suggestion - thanks, @MirandaJones

    Bonobo - Black Sands
    It's an incredible album all round...But, it's my work album of choice as it has calm and catchy synths with minimal vocals which makes it easier to concentrate when necessary, for me personally.

    πŸ‘†πŸ»Thanks! Our review...
    Couldn't have said it better ourselves - sat very nicely in the background as we worked. Wasn't too electronic, wasn't too symphonic; a perfect blend. Thanks, @Jimbo

    Badlands - Halsey
    It's got songs for when you need to calm down and work and when you need to get pumped up. It'll make you feel like you're driving down the 101 with the top down even though you're really dying at your desk.

    πŸ‘†πŸΎSweet! Our review...
    Didn't love it :( The music was a little too intense and repetitive for office vibes - perhaps better suited for night time driving on the 101. Thank you though, @egkeller!

    ZABA by Glass Animals
    Just funky enough to keep things interesting. Just subtle enough to keep things chill.

    πŸ‘†πŸΏAlrighty! Our review...
    Good album but when we pushed pause for a minute it was like a giant weight had been lifted off our ears... Thank you though, gonna bookmark this one for later :) @andalsothomas

    Portishead - Dummy
    Works great as background music, and isn't so jarring that it will distract you when on a call or typing an email.

    When this got added to Spotify we were like !!!!!!πŸŽ‰βœ¨πŸ’₯πŸŽ‰βœ¨πŸ’₯!!!!!!!!!!

    El Ten Eleven - These Promises are being Videotaped
    You'll get to that Inbox Zero thing in no time I swear. Also may induce foot tapping which will help burn calories.

    πŸ‘†πŸΌHere we go...
    Thoroughly enjoyed! Maybe a tad bit too trance-y for office vibes, but enjoyed it all and will probably go back for seconds. Thanks, @sippey

    Hail to the Thief - Radiohead
    Suggested by Β  @ataussig

    πŸ‘†πŸΎInteresting pick...
    We did King of Limbs, The Bends, and In Rainbows a few days ago.

    Deerhunter - Fading Frontier
    The brand new, most accessible album by one of my very favorite bands.
    Suggested by Β  @tothemaxxx
  16. β€’
    πŸ‘†πŸΌ Oh yeah!!!!
    Thank you, @tothemaxxx, totally forgot that came out. Listening now and imagine it'll be the perfect post-lunch pick. You're the best.

    'Aja' by Steely Dan
    Another classic, smooth jazz very conducive to a chill work day

    πŸ‘†πŸΌ Played that one many many many times
    As well as the entirely of Ms. Clark's discography. @emmasculating

    Cayucas - Bigfoot
    Fun and a little beachy without being too distracting.
    Suggested by Β  @MirandaJones
  22. β€’
    πŸ‘†πŸ½ Listed & Loved
    We're by the beach, so it was fitting. Looking forward to seeing if these guys do more. @MirandaJones

    dots and loops by stereolab
    you'll feel like you're in the future and the past at the same time.
    Suggested by Β  @boygirlparty
  24. β€’
    πŸ‘†πŸΏ We ❀️ Sterolab
    But haven't done that one yet. It's cued up for rotation. Thanks, @boygirlparty

    Gregory Alan Isakov - The Weatherman
    I listen to this album all the time when I'm working. It's chill and indie and great!

    πŸ‘†πŸ» Thoroughly enjoyed!
    Voice sounded a bit like Andrew Bird. Very calm and melodic - thanks for the good rec. - we listened all the way through! @sschenk
  27. β€’
    πŸ‘†πŸΎ Yep! Did that a few weeks ago
    The only issue for office listening is the dynamics - hard to set the volume and forget about it because sometimes it's too soft to hear and others it's like AHHHHH!!!!!! Which is one of the reasons it's a brilliant album, just not perfect office listening.

    The Kick Inside - Kate Bush
    Always, always Kate Bush. Perfect for background music when you need to focus.

    πŸ‘†πŸ» You win
    We played The Dreaming a few weeks ago! And @Nicholas flew to London last year to see her perform. You get our vibe! @siobhanhannah

    Mac Demarco's '2'
    A great album with a good amount of instrumental variety. Although it's dealing with drug use and other heavy themes, it remains energetic throughout.
    Suggested by Β  @lorridock

    ☝🏽️ Mac is always on heavy rotation

    Popcorn Exotica
    Because a compilation of 50's and 60's weird and forgotten rock'n'roll exotica is good anytime, and we ARE listening to it right now at work!
    Suggested by Β  @PMTHouseOfRock

    ☝🏽️ We did some exotica during our pumpkin carving party
    Will check this out now - sounds phenomenal!
