Sunday Morning Music vo. 20 - Exhale

May 10, 2020

I haven't posted a Sunday Morning mix since January and with how much things have changed since then I figured we could all use a mix with that Sunday morning vibe.

So here it is #20 in the Sunday Morning Music series. It's mostly new music, with 13 tracks from 2019 & 2020. One of the oddball old cuts is from 1980, John Martyn's "Sweet Little Mystery." I've always liked the tune but I hadn't heard it in a long time until it made an unlikely appearance in the show DEVS. As soon as I heard it I knew I need to include it in a mix.

A couple of vocal tracks in the middle seem to fit perfectly with the Sunday vibe but also fit with the messed up times we are living through. The Shards tune has this appropriate lyric -

 

"We know not yet what the future brings

But a bird's still a bird without its wings

Each day, each day is a curious thing

If I can't take flight then inside I'll sing"

 

And then there's Jonsi reminding us to breathe in and breathe out in "Exhale."

I've been drinking a ton of coffee as I work from home so maybe I'll say go grab a nice cup of Jasmine tea, a good book, play this mix, and...exhale.

Cheers!
