Trinity's Chilled- Out Playlist

Welcome back! New term, new beginnings, new music discoveries.

As a large number of us (reluctantly) launch into exam season, Phaser have you covered with a playlist of chilled-out numbers to calm those nerves and distract those brain cells. 

‘The Spoils’ by Massive Attack and Hope Sandoval 

Two 90s legends pool their strengths to create a stirring trip-hop number backed by a rousing orchestra. 

‘Monsters Under the Bed’ by Nilüfer Yanya

Laidback lo-fi from one of the most buzzing releases of the year so far. 

‘Monday Tuesday’ by Girl Ray 

Quirky and richly textured, teen indie-rockers Girl Ray impress with an intimacy beyond their years. 

‘Autumn Sweater’ by Yo La Tengo 

It might not be sweater weather anymore, but it’s always the season for this sugar-sweet ode to falling in love. 

‘I Want You to Give Me Enough Time’ by Sunflower Bean

Dreamy jangle-pop made for lazy days in Port Meadow and University Parks.

‘Hounds’ by The Antlers 

While the focus may be on the 10th anniversary of cult hit ‘Hospice’, there’s never a bad time to revisit this atmospheric hidden diamond. 

‘What If Birds Aren’t Singing They’re Screaming’ by Aldous Harding 

Soft and whimsical, an underrated gem from Rough Trade’s album of the year 2017. 

‘Deep Sea’ by Snail Mail

Swirling, broody Pavement-esque indie rock from Maryland’s most sought-after export. 

‘No More Runnin’ by Animal Collective

A soft and intimate respite from the chaos of noughties classic ‘Merriweather Post Pavilion’. 

‘Melon Yellow’ by Slowdive

Finally, the masters of manipulating noise on top of their game.
