Christmas is mercifully over. This week, every year, my family falls into a sort of daze as we recuperate from the excitement (or crippling depression) of Christmas and prepare for the festivities of New Year’s.
This week is simple. Let’s have some good music to zone out to. Something…ambient. Or music to drop acid to. It’s all about an altered mental state this week.
I’m not out of my mind, just out of my head. Make it weird. Or pensive. Hypnotize me. I shall be unfazed.
No dedications. I’m checked out for the rest of 2018. Here are some starters in line with the theme. Don’t overthink this one. Don’t think at all, really.

Natural One by Folk Implosion
Holland by Black Angels
Under the Milky Way by The Church
Oshin by Diiv
Fade Into You by Mazzy Star
Mascara by Deftones
Black Soap by Ex Cops
The Pressman by Primus
The Democratic Circus by The Talking Heads
Orestes by A Perfect Circle (best of this list, IMO)

Watch the Sky For Me by Powerman 5000
Happy New Year.
