"It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas..."
The weekend has finally arrived, but there's no rest for the weary as we all continue to "pound the pavement" in search of those perfect gifts. Of course, this can be a harrowing experience even for the most seasoned veteran of shopping. After working all week, it really is hard to put yourself out into the retail world.
The answer to keeping your sanity during this time is to take a page from the jogger's diary - pace yourself, keep hydrated, and be sure to have your favourite tunes running through those ear buds.
Music, as they say, soothes the savage beast, and we all can fall prey to that emotional distress at this time of the year. So, as always, "tune in, turn on, and chill out"!
Ho, ho, ho!
Congrats to Skcollob this week as he makes it to number one. Followed by Kant Sleep and the beautiful Miss Norah Jones. All three are in good company of each other.
The ambient sounds of The Orb continue to climb the chart. The blood pressure lowering sounds of The 10 Sultans of Rudyard is a perfect antidote to the anxiety of the season. Of course, the same can be said for Michael e, Nouvelle Vague, and Normandie. Thanks for tuning in to relax!
This week saw the release of a wonderful collection from seasoned chillout artist, Pier-O, entitled Passion. Made up mostly of older titles, it does include three new tracks. One of which - Beach Waves is Bubbling Under this week! Another calm-inducing track to help you through the day. Great collection, Pier-O!
A big shout out to all of you supporting the artists and the station, and be sure to vote for your favourite track at www.thisislounge.com.
