TCR Mixtape No. 26: Dreamy Vibes

chicago, local music, mixtape, Well, I set off to create a playlist of 10 dream-inducing ballads, but I ended up with 70—turns out it's way too difficult to narrow down these gorgeous, layered songs, each full of their own unique complexities. You know that place right before you fall asleep, when you snap out of a half-dream? This playlist is meant for those moments of being wrapped up in sleep, when our thoughts are put aside for a little while and we gain moments of total serenity. The playlist is meant to be listened to in order; enjoy songs spanning various decades, genres, and levels of instrumentation. The playlist is best served in a candlelit setting, perhaps with a good book or glass of wine in hand.
