Sunday Morning Medicine is a feature from Dancing Astronaut dedicated to the mellower side of electronic music. We bring you our favorite therapeutic selections—old and new—in attempts to alleviate the agonizing effects of a long weekend of partying.
Essex’s Lapalux is nothing if not avant-garde. His rousing, off-kilter melodies from “IAMSYS” are an idyllic dose of swirling strange to get your brain in gear, even if your body is a bit more reluctant.
From Gorillaz‘s most recent album, The Now Now, “Magic City,” paints a decadent portrait of what could be this Sunday. Find some wistful comfort in knowing Damon Albarn, too, is “questioning it all.”
Pristine and plaintive, Moby‘s Porcelain is the sonic reconciliation you never knew you needed. Languorous keys and reverberating strings will restore your likely fragile insides to their natural state.
With its languid, downtempo allure, “All I Can Do,” emulates the moody, retro synth struts of Tame Impala, alongside his own nuanced brand of smoky surrealism. A soundtrack to disintegrate.
The most compelling offering from Icarus‘s technicolor house EP, This Must Be The Place, “Running Away” breathes truth to its eponymously named escapism. Let the track wipe your worries clean with its wandering synth line and prophetic lyricism.
