I'm always on the listen for chilled out background music to work to. My boss introduced me to Cigarettes After Sex, which coincidentally is also the name of a band.

Lovely to listen to, but it freaks me out that the lead singer is a bloke.

I say this rarely Dave, but listen to Dinny because he's right.

I've never found a better background noise album than Swim by Caribou.

That sounds like faint praise but it isn't, I love that album.
An absolute unit

"Chill Out" compilation series, typically from a DJ or Band.

Nick Warren

Dave Seaman
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Back-Mine-Dave ... ave+seaman

Faithless
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Back-Mine-Fait ... +faithless

These 3 are very very chilled...

Grove Armada
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Back-Mine-Groo ... ove+armada

MJ Cole
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Back-Mine-MJ-C ... ne+mj+cole

Roots Manuva
https://www.amazon.co.uk/Back-Mine-Root ... ck+to+mine

these 3 are a little more uptempo but still perfect to work along to...

There really isn't a bad one in the series - I've got just about all of them...

I'm really not an EDM fan anymore. I did it to death it along with a myriad of recreational drugs in the 90s :lol:

Fair enough but they really aren’t like that. Grove armada starts with A Tribe called Quest, then Barry White and later had Al Green covering the Doors Light my Fire etc...

Another album I'm playing to death right now is Sparkle Hard by Stephen Malkmus and The Jicks. It's one of those that you need to listen to a few times but it's awesome (assuming you like discordant shoe gaze)

Again, as you know, I’m one of the cool kids, and as such I can recommend the new album from The Carters (Beyonce and Jay Z). It’s really quite good

The follow up, 'PHUK' isn't so good IMO. Got a distinctly b-side feel to it.

But 'Tiny Foldable Cities' is great.

Groove Armada's contribution to the Late Night Tales series was marvellous too.

I met Tom in Ibiza when my mate scabbed cigs off his wife. I regret not discussing the Black Light album with him.

Holy thread resurrection.

Tool - Fear Inoculum

Fvcking staggering. I'm trying not to jump to the conclusion that this is their greatest album yet. Which given they're the greatest band in the history of anything ever, is saying something. 7/7 time signatures, epic soundscape, tablas & polyrhythmic drumming, incredible vocals, truly heavy thundering basslines, crushing guitar work, twin guitar solos. 6 Tracks over 10mins, long incl one at 15mins, 127 minutes in total, including interludes and a 4.5min long drum solo track that's like something out of the film Whiplash.

And the production values are immense. Never have I listened to an album so loudly without the soundscape collapsing into a mess.

And for a bunch of old farts it looks like they're about to destroy Taylor Swift in the album charts.

This is probably my favourite track - I nearly stopped dead at first listen, but I was doing 70 on a d/c at the time
