Sense of Idle
Play

There are 3 principles guiding the creation of Calm Pill mixes: song curation with variety, production value, and showcasing artists. On the last one, every Calm Pill mix features several artists whose great music deserves to be discovered and heard, but every now and then, a whole artist album inspires a mix of its own, and this is one such mix.

I’d like to present to you the debut album of marine eyes: idyll (marineeyes.bandcamp.com/album/idyll). She had but one simple intention in creating idyll: “to create a peaceful, gentle place.” And that she absolutely did! The album is exquisitely beautiful, combining ethereal vocals and soothing ambient chords with nature sounds she gathered from various locations like Ojai, LA hiking trails and even her bedroom window!

And if this beautiful music sounds familiar, it’s because I’ve featured Cynthia before in an album called awakened souls, which was inspired by the music of the ambient duo of the same name made up of Cynthia and her husband James Bernard. In fact, in recognition of the beautiful music this duo has gifted us over the years, the title of this album is a play on awakened souls’ album a sense of return and idyll.

As always, if you enjoyed this album, please look up the artists on Bandcamp or your favorite streaming service and support their music.


Making this mix was a labor of love. If you feel like supporting Calm Pills online radio & podcast or showing your appreciation, buy me a cup of a coffee (uppmixes.com/donate). You can also share this with your friends, rate it or leave a review on Apple Podcasts or wherever you subscribed to this podcast. Thank you.

Also, did you know that I have another podcast called Chill Pills. It features the same quality of craftmanship and careful curation you’ve come to expect from this show but focuses on more genres of music spanning chillout, lounge, jazz, instrumental, lo-fi chill hop, etc. Check it out:
