Dry Cleaning – “Anna Calls From The Arctic”

Hoping to amp up your ASMR game? Dry Cleaning’s Anna Calls From The Arctic is your song. It’s ASMR backed by a keyboard, bass, and clarinet jam – it feels like having a conversation with your cool, record-collecting, hand-and-poke tattoo enthusiastic girlfriend.

Makaya McCraven – “Dream Another”

Let this track convince you otherwise if you think jazz is music for old people. Kicking off with a unique drumline followed by a mix of samples, Dream Another is just perfect acid jazz. This is not your typical Starbucks jazz song.
