Music for Video: April Showers

Photo by Alex Jacobi

This is Snoop Dog's favorite Music for Video collection, because it's perfect for drizzle.

A mix of mellow, reflective and moody songs, perfect for watching Spring rainstorms outside your window. It's like lying upside down off the edge of your bed thinking about someone far away. Like walking home early in the morning, after sleeping somewhere you shouldn't have, while the streets are still wet. It's a mix that makes you want to throw away all your adderall and start feeling again.

1. Gillicuddy (websiteCC BY-NC) - Simple minimalist folk played with extreme sincerity. The sound of flowers growing out of wet soil.

2. Podington Bear (websiteCC BY-NC) - There is an entire world and an epic tale within this song. If you like this, then you might also like the huge library of instrumental albums Podington Bear offers for non-commercial use. Contact the artist for more permissions.

3. Chris Zabriskie (websiteCC BY) - You're trying so hard to make things work, but you just can't get it together. Contact the artist for more permissions.

4. Candlegravity (websiteCC BY-NC-SA) - The soundtrack to your long distance relationship. A voice enters about a minute in and repeats throughout the song.

5. Augustus Bro & Gallery Six (websiteCC BY-NC-SA) - Music for finding beauty in something ordinary. I'm pretty sure this was the song playing during the paper bag scene in American Beauty.

6. LASERS (websiteCC BY-NC-SA) - Music for taking in the world around you, feeling connected and distant all at once.


7. Black Ant (websiteCC BY) - This track is the little black dress of the mix. It will make your work look sexy and professional no matter what you do.

8. akaUNO (websiteBY-NC-SA) - The seasons are changing. Go with the flow this time.

9. alright lover (websiteBY-NC-SA) - The sound of the planets drifting further and further apart.

10. reed blue (websiteCC BY-NC-SA) - This song has a deep sonic growl to it, like a hurt animal is trying to sing you a love song through a vocoder. It's repetitive, mellow and meditative.

11. krackatoa (websiteCC BY-NC-SA) - A song for watching the clouds blow away and wondering if the storm is finally over. Contact the artist for more permissions.

12. BLEO (websiteCC BY-NC-SA) - Electronic scales take us on a futuristic journey up into the Universe, where we do a digital rain dance. Spring is on the way.
