Meditation Zone

Ugh, the world sure could use a time out and some meditation to bring the temperature down a notch or ten. So here's a collection of calming tracks for meditation, reading, a bubble bath or just staring off into space for an hour.

Here are links to the albums used in this mix in the order in which they appear:

Being Human by Fragile X


I am a lucky guy. Lucky, because I get to present a second guest in as many weeks. Lucky, because I was able to discover new artists in this excellent mix. And lucky because I am also lazy and these guest mixes allow me to put some beautiful music out there with the heavy lifting done by someone else. 

This mix comes to us from J. Gorecki who records as Fragile X, a musician/producer from Glasgow and the founder of the Bricolage record label:

Fragile X also has a very good new album out that you can find here:

And here is more Fragile X music:

Here's what he says about this new mix:

“I put this mix together to tie in with the release of my new album, ‘Human Condition’. Like the album, it is intended to portray the sense of the perpetual cycle of life. The entrance and the exit. The journey that we all individually take through birth, growth, emotion, aspiration, conflict and mortality.”

Thanks for an excellent album and great mix!

somewhere else by Michael McGarrity


Friend of the show, Michael McGarrity, offered to create a guest mix and, of course, I jumped at the chance because Michael has been cranking out excellent mixes for several years. You can find his stuff here:

Here's what Michael has to say about this mix:

"I made this mix to help remember those long summer days and nights which feel so far away in February. It was a particularly rainy Saturday when I put this together & all I wanted was to get away to somewhere dry & warm, even if just with a soundtrack. Hopefully this takes you away to that 'somewhere else' too."

I've said this before, but one reason I love guest mixes is they are a combo of familiar and unfamiliar artists. It's always cool to hear new stuff mixed in with favorites. 

Here are links to every album used in this set, in the same order in which they appear in the mix:

Thanks for the mix Michael!
