I still do feel so horribly lonely


I've been listening to such an obscene amount of Morrissey lately. I am unsure if this is symptomatic of something else.

But I also covered this song in case you like things that are not quite as good as the original.

Genre Research Project 73/1361: Space Ambient


Flowing and relaxing, Ambient music often employs sequencers along with cosmic synthesizers which are played in a sweeping and gradual manner. The successive ascending and descending rhythms are enhanced by almost imperceptible patterns in order to create a resonating, distant psychedelic sound. It emerged in the early 1970s from the ambient side of Progressive Electronic with the specific purpose to attune the listener's mind to a state of cosmic awareness. New Age music also exerted a great influence in the later development of this genre.
