A briefer mix while I finish my debut album, “Buried Reefs” is the latest chapter in my ongoing obsession with ambient and drone music. Taking cues from the Boards of Canada school of warped VHS psychedelia, “Buried Reefs” offers a meditative retreat from the chaos of the holidays, layering twinkling synths and drones over brief field recordings and actual narration from vintage nature doc shorts. I would highly recommend this as part of a playlist with some of my previous ambient/downbeat mixes, perhaps as a buffer between “Mini Anthology of Ambient” and “Set the Controls for the…”

I put in all-nighter to rush this out in time for what was then a rare warm Spring day in Michigan. This is a shorter mix of some of the best sun-soaked indie out there, cut and pasted together to form a brief soundtrack to getting the first sun of the year, going on a backwoods bike ride, or just cruising around with the windows down. Even though I finished this in mid-March, it will only sound better with the more tropical weather we have been getting here over the last few weeks (link in title below, artwork above by me).
