As the concept of self-care threatens to become a tired cliché or meaningless commodity, we’ve decided to double down on what’s gotten us through good and bad days for decades: music. Namely the New Age, drone, and ambient records that slip into the background like Satie or envelop a room entirely.
Say hello to self | centered, your daily source for streamable, laid-back LPs, hand-selected by our editorial staff and guest artists like Nick Malkin, Lori Scacco, and Luke Jenner. Also on deck in the weeks, months, and hopefully years, ahead: the occasional long read (it’ll be worth it) and a curated selection of mindful features and mixes from the s/t archives.
No silly rating systems. No tepid hot takes. No shameless (or is it shameful?) clickbait. Just songs that soothe, no prescription required. Need to reach us about a record that belongs in our collective chill-out room? Email firstname.lastname@example.org or follow us at Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
Now let’s #getcentered together.
