Most mixes I create are typically inspired by a single song that I hear and feel strongly about creating a themed mix around. This one, however, has two sources of inspiration.
First, I stumbled upon the dreamy, hazy and romantic style of a band called Cigarettes After Sex (the name beats me!). They became an instant favorite and their song Falling in Love was crying out to be the star of a mix. A little after that, Hans Zimmer and co. mesmerized me in the emotionally epic soundtrack to the Netflix original film Hillbilly Elegy. This mix begins and ends with music from the soundtrack, which gives it a particularly high note to end on that I hope would leave you with a lingering sense of love and hope.
This podcast is also available as ad-free 24/7 online radio on your Alexa or Google Assistant smart speaker. Just say “Alexa, Open Chill Pills Radio” or “Ok Google, Ask Chill Pills Radio to Play“.
Hope you enjoy this episode. Making this mix was a labor of love 🧡. If you feel like supporting Chill Pills podcast and online radio, buy me a cup of coffee ☕ (uppmixes.com/donate).
