Now Playing: Biorhythm Mix (Selman Sunset Mix)

Generally speaking, this is the space where new playlists are born after being pushed out of Beta. Because of the migration to WordPress from tumblr, the Selman Sunset Mix is not brand new, but it is the most current playlist established. These posts will explain the name, the best time of day to listen to the mix, and some notable tracks, along with a Spotify playlist window (you WILL need to download Spotify to play the tracks, but you don’t have to be premium or anything), and a tracklisting since Spotify sometimes doesn’t have the more obscure music I listen to.

Name Game: Since I worked the evening shift at my former employers, I’d drive home about sunset (once DST started). Also, this was the last playlist made while employed with my former employers

Temporality: Late afternoon/evening. Perfect for when you’re just getting off from a stressful job and are finna get to’ down to relieve it. It’s also a good late morning transiting mix.

Notable Tracks:

“Stuck On You (Lemongrass Samba de Sol Remix)” – Michiko

Nu bossa is one of my guilty pleasures, and any time I see it infused with house, I pay attention. Michiko effortlessly blends the two into a danceable, sippable track that is just wonderful to chill down to

“Sweet Nothing” – Calvin Harris feat. Florence Welch

I hate the radio with a passion, but this is the first song that I heard on the radio and liked enough to include on an active playlist in almost ten years. Why? Because Calvin Harris is a decent enough producer to know that when a vocalist like Florence Welch is on your track, you don’t have to bullshit your music to compensate for quality. With that said, you can’t listen to this track for too long, because since it is radio friendly, you will get tired of it fast.

“Silence to Navigate” – Rover

When I first heard this track, I thought it was going to haunt the crap out of my dreams. Instead, I found it to be the PERFECT indie nightcap closing song. When you’re coming back from a night of drinking, and you just need to cruise out the last few minutes after you got food, or are trying to seal the deal, this is a great track to put everyone in a chill mood (and pass the pharmaceuticals…)
