For folk style..."Watchhouse" (formerly went by "Mandarin Orange"). I played them at work all last year when things were hectic and everyone seemed to enjoy it.

As for relaxation, I have turned to the Sinatra album "In the Wee Small Hours". I often play it to help me fall asleep if I am stressed. It is crafted so well that it really does represent the feel of the early morning hours.

I need to relax a bit and was looking for some nice calm folk or country easy listening type of music. I was just listening to some John Denver, any recommendations?
+3, 4, 5 on Nick Drake, Cowboy Junkies, Emmylou Harris (Wrecking Ball), Mississippi John Hurt. They’re all a touch sad but mellow and relaxing.

Cat Stevens is the first I think of for folk guitar. There’s some hard strumming acoustic spikes but his music puts me in that place…

Anything at all by this cat. I wish him all the success in the world, but kind of glad that he's still relatively unknown in the US.


*EDIT: Sorry, except Fink's earlier DJ work, although that has its appeals too. He's also got a great and widely varied/constantly-updated playlist on Spotify I should pay more attention to.





Early solo Mould?

Fleet Foxes self-titled album, the entire thing. One of my favorite things recorded in the last 20 years. Amazing
