Instruments: Bass, Accordion, Drums, EP, Guitar, Horns, Organ, Synth, Sax, Vibes
Feel: Grooving, Relaxed
You know what's cool? A standpipe in the winter. I imagine this one with a hip mustache and a plaid beret. Enough of the imagery, this is a little downtempo chill piece with lush horn punctuation. Suitable for: walks in the rain, time-lapse videos, sad cooking shows. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
|Kings of Tara
"Kings of Tara"
Instruments: Bass, Drums, Kit, Guitar, Flute, Banjo
Feel: Bouncy, Bright, Grooving
This one is just cool. If you just tried to dance to this and fell over, that's because every measure is missing one beat. Still it grooves quite well, assuming you can groove in 7/4 time. Uncompressed download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
Instruments: Piano, Bass, Drums, Vibes, Saxes, Trumpet, Flute
Feel: Grooving, Mysterious
The year is... I have no idea. Timeless. Could be now, could be in the 1950s. Super cool jazz for your hardcore detectives! Also useful for beat poets! Also useful for ennui or boredom! Well, interesting sorts of boredom. You can download this in high quality with separate instrument files here!
|Ossuary 5 - Rest
"Ossuary 5 - Rest"
Feel: Calming, Dark, Eerie, Relaxed
After some amount of introspection, I can only conclude that this is the afterlife, or some entryway to the afterlife... or a really cool club in the Meatpacking district after-hours. This is the most genuinely relaxing piece of the Ossuary suite... still has a bit of an edge.You can download the high-quality version of this piece here!
|Dreams Become Real
"Dreams Become Real"
Instruments: Piano, Synths
Feel: Calming, Somber
Beautiful dreamy piece that confuses times and spaces. You really just need to take a moment and listen to this one - because it is really cool. How cool? You should probably find out! There are a lot of extra synth things going on in it that are hidden in and amongst the piano, like one of those hidden picture books with 45 paperclips, but you can only ever see 7 of them. You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
Feel: Dark, Intense
Too cool for school! This is a warm and refreshing, yet invigorating piece of 8-bit-like wonderfulness. Lots of modern blipping and bleeping once it gets going. I imagine this piece can be used in a lot of computer games about computer games. There's also a bunch of overdrive on "Level Up". Loops perfectly for all you video game devs out there! You can download this in uncompressed format here. Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
|Severe Tire Damage
"Severe Tire Damage"
Instruments: Synths, Percussion
Feel: Aggressive, Driving
Ultra-cool downtempo piece with faster driving percussions. Want to look cool? Make this your theme song. Play it loud enough and you can use it for pro-wrestling entrance music! Uncompressed download comes with a bonus 96bpm set. You can download this in uncompressed format here! Download comes with individual tracks so you can make your own mixes.
|On the Ground
|Mining by Moonlight
"Mining by Moonlight"
Instruments: EP, Bass, Kit
Feel: Bouncy, Bright, Grooving, Relaxed
Light, upbeat, cool - useful for video game montages, and telephone on-hold music... and... nearly anything where you need something interesting - but not TOO interesting.
|Moon Lounge Omicron Prime
"Moon Lounge Omicron Prime"
Instruments: Synths, Percussion, Organ, Guitar
Feel: Bouncy, Humorous
Okay, not quite a synth, not quite and organ - that thing is a mellotron. And it is cool. Interesting baroque changes in the B section. General Space-age cocktail party awesomeness for the entire piece.
Instruments: Organ, Guitar, Kit
Feel: Aggressive, Bouncy, Grooving, Intense
A sort of funky, rocking, semi-swinging piece with enough dirt to make it cool. Like... jeans that were previously worn by coal miners that are sold in high-end stores.
