Boards of Canada, Aphex Twin, & Dena Amy

Good morning.

Welcome to new subscribers. You've joined a community searching for perfect focus soundtracks. If you’ve got a recommendation, reply back.

Wednesday editions are free. Subscribe to the full weekday edition here.

Thank you to subscribers for undergoing an experiment with weather coverage yesterday. We'll continue to focus on music.

There's a community on YouTube that loops good working tracks to fill an hour. Boards of Canada, a Scottish electronic duo, make some of the most beautiful working music in the form of standard-length tracks (3-7 minutes). Here are a couple of their tracks looped as such:

Boards of Canada - Echus (Extended) (1 hr)

Boards of Canada - Olson (Extended) (1 hr)

This hour-transformation of Aphex Twin helped us settle down too:

Aphex Twin - Rhubarb (Extended) (1 hr)

And since it's Wednesday, here's another, unrelated extra: a third mix from the Headspace series we recommended yesterday.

Dena Amy for Mixmag (90m)

When you turn this music on, turn notifications on your computer and phone off.

Have a great day at work today.
