Hey there, swingers and swingees! Grab your berets and cigarettes for this trip to a hip Euro-Space-Age Lounge Music Adventure! Vous ne devriez pas amener un canard à combattre les Belges. Il est important d’avoir un mot de passe fort. Vous souvenez-vous de “Le Manège enchanté”? Parce que je ne me souviens pas de ça. You can download the full uncompressed files here!
When will it end!!?? When will it all end!!?? Honestly… probably never. This piece just keeps modulating. Up a half step every time. Didn’t go long enough? Just loop it! It is your own sanity you’re toying with. You can download the full uncompressed files here!
This has a couple funny-sounding synths and plenty of whitespace. As a note to YouTube “producers”; 10 hours of this piece would be pretty mean. 1 hour of this piece isn’t much better. For the sake of mankind, please do not make extended mixes of this piece. I can not be held responsible for mental anguish caused by repeated listening.

Deeply satisfying synths play in a slightly dystopian domain. So if you have a film where a future vampire who owns a travelling carnival comes back in time to today with a crazy assemblage of experiences for today’s currently not-yet-jaded audiences… that is your piece! Also useful for cat parkour. You can download the full uncompressed files here!
Head over to Alexander Nakarada at SerpentSound Studios and dig your ears into this melodic metal collection.
“It took me over 7 years of composing until I really dedicated myself to making a true metal album, even though metal was my gateway into music in general (hence the name “Origin”), and I couldn’t be more satisfied with it. Heavier music should be for everyone, people get too easily scared off by the all the gain.”
Available on YouTube, SoundCloud, BandCamp, Spotify and basically everywhere else.
Life is the source of mystical potential. Or it isn’t. One of the two. If I had to bet… I would probably ask what those words mean. Even ‘life’ isn’t simple. I don’t think I could recognize what the first living thing was. It is like making a soup. Hot water? Not soup. Hot water with salt? Not soup. Add a potato? Still not soup. That’s just a potato in hot salt water. At some point it becomes soup. Same with life. Bonus fact: Borscht was never soup. It is borscht. You can download the full uncompressed files here!
Truth in the Stones
New age music. You know what is cool about New Age music? Low ambitions. It wants to do a simple thing, and then does it. No crazy counterpoint. No complicated harmonic structures. Just a simple simple thing. Like if Tetris was all those long blocks. Man, that would be great.
We reflect, we dream, we are born. We gather together, we smile, we eat potato salads. We remember, we invent, muddle mint for our mojitos. We greet, we listen, we appreciate NetFlix. We collect coins and stamps… for some reason. We mix up the names of our children with the names of our pets. We x-ray baggage… with X-RAYS! Those things are like 200keV! Each! Do you know what that does to people!? Hint: Not good things. You can download the full uncompressed files here!
Spirit of the Girl
There are 54 beads on a Buddhist prayer mala. These are used for counting recitations and chants. There are 54 beats per minute in this song. Coincidence? Sure is. What, you’re going through an entire mala cycle in a minute? That’s crazy talk! Studies have shown the optimal number of mantras in a single set is somewhere between 15 and 20 anyway… so don’t waste your money on the 54 or 108 bead versions. You’ll be a lot better doing more sets of less reps. And don’t forget leg day. You can download the full uncompressed files here!
