Music break

By February 12, 2015November 4th, 2021Workflow

My music collection knows no shame – with a wide selection of trashy top-40 and vapid pop. I also follow a variety of independent, alternative, local and under-recognised bands (which makes for great concert-going).

Here is my early 2015 list of three albums I can’t stop playing, this list is specifically albums perfect to accompany a day of focused design work. These tunes that manage a delicate balance between being catchy and interesting whilst not distracting from an intense design session.


1. Above & Beyond – We Are All We Need

I first heard Above & Beyond live at Pemberton Festival 2014 – and it was my musical highlight of the year. This year they have delivered a stella album – I would say goes above and beyond (see what I did there?). From the first listen I had chills!

2. Flight Facilities – Down to Earth

I make it to see these guys whenever they come to Vancouver – if you get the chance, check them out! The release of this album was a long time coming. I love the chill feeling that still has a kick and unique sound.

3. Röyksopp – The Inevitable End

Whilst this album isn’t new, I still love it because it suits any mood – and a new sound always catches me every time I listen to it.

There we have it, three albums that are motivating me through a design work day. What are yours? What are the latest albums on your playlist?
