music in the background

I really like this mix so I thought I would share it with you.
Anyone has something that would recommend to listen to while drawing?

^Nice choice Gasponce, D&B is the best music to dance to imo. Work wise I like it a bit more chill. Like this:

Love the sentiment of this video. A message to all you kids - #GoOutside

See if this link works. It has some good background tunes (instrumental).

I usually put on a mix of different songs, mellow acoustic stuff like Iron & Wine, Sufjan Stevens, but with more uptempo stuff mixed in too. Some Nick Drake is always good too.

I "watch" things when I draw, mostly Netflix. If I listen to music, it's possible that I could get in a mood to make a playlist, which takes like an hour, and if my eyes aren't busy (on something other than my art), they'll wonder off into the internet.

I feel like I can only listen to music when I read or drive.

This is one of my new favorite bands. This whole album is absolutely fantastic, and is super easy to get into on the first listen. I highly recommend the War on Drugs

This video is pretty cool. The singer used his own home movies to put it together.

There's lots of great suggestions here.

Thanks, but I separate the music to listen to and one that flies in the background and makes me feel somehow better and work better.

I completely understand. Doesn't mean you can't find some great background work music in there.

If any of you are on Spotify I've made a couple of playlists that I think are pretty good for background work music. I recommend throwing it on shuffle if you want to get a "mix" of music.

12k Records. 12k is a record label run by Taylor Deupree and it is what some would call ambient or modern classical. They put out a lot of really melodic, soothing music.

Oktaf: Music and Art Label. Similar-ish to 12k this is a little more cinematic and electronic, but really good "space music".

Border Community. Founded by James Holden, Border Community is a bit more energetic and "dancey" but still a very eclectic label. Nathan Fake an others call this label home.

Leaving Records. If you just want to get weird with it Leaving Records, based out of LA and run by Matthewdavid and Jesselisa Moretti is the spot for you. Covering a lot of artists and styles this is one of my favorites.

cool stuff. & thanks Paper Crane, Message To Bears is now on my favorites list.
