Albums Collected 1: Just Relax

I recently bought the following albums on CD. If you don’t know which music to put on, you can also check them out on Spotify. It’s a selection of folk, indie, rock, pop, downtempo and soul. Music to relax on.


Angus & Julia Stone ‎– Down The Way

  • Genre: Folk Rock, Acoustic
  • Year: 2010
  • Producers: Angus & Julia Stone

  • My reason for CD purchase: I played this album on Spotify to calm my crying baby with cramps. It worked and that’s why I also wanted the original CD in my music collection.

Feist ‎– Metals

  • Year: 2011
  • Producers: Feist, Chilly Gonzales, Mocky, Valgeir Sigurðsson

Birdy – Birdy

Everything But The Girl ‎– Amplified Heart

  • Discography: eighth studio album
  • My reason for CD purchase: I have a few albums of Everything But The Girl: “Walking Wounded” (1996) and “Temperamental” (1999). I like them, so I also wanted this album in my collection with their big hit single “Missing”.

Erykah Badu ‎– Live

  • Genre: R&B, Neo Soul, Hip Hop
  • Year: 1997
  • Producers: Kedar Massenburg, Erykah Badu, Norman Hurt

  • My reason for CD purchase: I have her debut album “Baduizm” which released earlier that year in 1997. I read reviews about that album, which also mentioned this live CD that was nominated for Best R&B Album at the 1999 Grammy Awards. So I was really curious about this CD.
