Here's a mix of a selection of stuff I was listening to a lot around the time I was writing my latest album, Grounded - hence "Background(ed) Music".
I leant towards contemporary stuff that is in the ballpark of what I do and things I might call an influence, rather than just anything I was enjoying.
Includes: Jessy Lanza, Ametsub, Unmap, Pjusk, Strië, Olof Melander...
Only one New Zealand track doesn't quite feel right - better fetch my hair shirt. I was listening to Womb, Skymning, Anthonie Tonnon, Lontalius, Silicon a lot, for starters. Gulls, but that was when the album was finished.
