I love instrumental music. I don't know a huge amount of people who share my obsession but in case you're curious, which I hope you are, below is a playlist of my favourite instrumental tracks and albums on Spotify.

The playlist contains quite a variety of music all loosely categorised as instrumental. Including modern classical (a.k.a neo-classical), drone, electronic, minimalist, percussive — all sorts really. I'd suggest putting it on shuffle and skipping past anything that doesn't take your fancy, it's quite likely the next track will be completely different.

Artists featured include Nils Frahm, Olafur Arnalds, A Winged Victory For The Sullen, Stars Of The Lid, Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Jon Hopkins, Julia Kent, Max Richter, Peter Broderick and Rival Consoles... To name a few!

Enjoy!

ps. If you have any recommendations please send them my way!

My Current Jam: Courtney Barnett "Sometimes I Sit And Think, Sometimes I Just Sit"
 
courtney barnett
 

Rolling Stone sums up this album pretty well...

Courtney Barnett makes it sound so insultingly easy — why aren't there three or four rock & roll singer-songwriter records this loose and frisky and funny and stout-hearted every year?

I first heard of Courtney Barnett a few weeks ago when I stumbled across her song Avant Gardener (a fantastic track from her 2013 EP 'The Double EP: A Sea Of Split Peas). I promptly discovered she had an album that was released earlier this year. It's definitely fun and frisky and possibly one of my favourite albums of the year. 

If you are only listen to one song make it this one. But, I suggest you give the whole album a spin. For your convenience, here it is on Spotify.
