Work has got me stressed. What do you listen to that's like super chill and relaxing?

Bonus points if it's on Spotify.

I can't think of specific examples, but in terms of genre, jazz is always something I enjoy.

A Scape Theme from Tephlon Funk (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sJFvJNKNZcI).

Vanilla (https://vanillabeats.bandcamp.com/).

I got a lot more, but it'll take forever to post.

Listen to So Much for the City by The Thrills. Ideally when the weather is nice :)

Perfect chill-out album.

Boards of Canada.

Here's one of my favorite albums by them. Pete Standing Alone is probably my favorite song on the album.

This is actually another Blank Banshee song called "Teen Pregnancy." I just like this video someone made for this.

Only going to post three videos so no spoiler tag this time.

This song has a VERY familiar sample to it if you ever played Chrono Trigger. It's obvious, but still well hidden enough where the track has its own identity.
_____________________________________________

The next two videos are one play list in a single long video. These were made because before GTAV was released, it was rumored that a station like this would be in the game's car radio. Since it didn't happen, this is how the person who put these together imagined what it would have been like.

i like your synthwave style sephex
blank banshee is actually something out of this world i actually find it hard to follow the sampling
im pretty sure they use a ff8 sample in there too somewhere, maybe not that particular song

Yeah, I have noticed TON of video game samples. And some track titles allude or outright reference RPGs. Some samples I have noticed from memory...

Zeal music from the link I posted just now.
That underwater Chrono Cross track near the end of the first album.
FFVIII Eyes on Me opening chords.
Metroid Prime.
EarthBound crickets and police sirens from the opening of that game.

EDIT: Remembered another one. In the second album the Donkey Kong Country swimming music is straight up the centerpiece of the track. Basically sounds like a VG cover, but still fits in with the rest of the album. Screw it, I'll post it.

Check out Tommy Emmanuel's acoustic guitar music, it's really relaxing. Best album I've heard so far is Endless Road.

It has his version of Over the Rainbow on it:
