I'm looking for music to keep me calm and help me focus.  Lately, I'm getting bored of the same old stuff.  I'm curious what do you listen to?

Someone suggested I try brain FM.  It's an AI generated a music-like substance that claims to be scientifically designed to help with different tasks.

The first time I tried it for focus I got quite anxious.  The second time it worked incredibly well.  Last night I tried the sleep setting and I had a terrible night of almost feverish dreams that kept me on the edge of waking but not enough to get up and turn off the sound.  The relaxing version seems very soothing.  I can't decide if it's worth spending cash on, so I wonder if there might be something better out there.

hi Raven:

Not sure what your musical tastes are, but lately I've been listening to a lot of Railroad Earth. They are a pleasant jammy mix of folk, americana, bluegrass with maybe a splash of celtic.
There is an insane amount of music available to stream or download on the Live Music Archive (LMA), here's a couple of links to get you started:

https://archive.org/details/rre2018-03-07

...my favorite tunes include "The Jupiter and the 119", "Seven Story Mountain" and "Black Elk Speaks"


Other jamgrass artists I enjoy include The Infamous Stringdusters, Cabinet, and Billy Strings ....all can be found on the LMA.

Some non-bluegrass artists you might like to check out:  

Bill Frisell (nice spacey jazz guitar picking):

Richard Shindell (singer/songwriter):

and last but not least, George Winston (piano):

Or try MVYradio for a nice folksy mix ...they stream live 24/7 - you might find something new and interesting there:  http://www.mvyradio.com

That's my roommate. He's kinda weird, but he always pays his half of the rent. And he gave me this tiny ad:
