Playlist 537 - Instrumental Mix: March 2023

A mix of some of my favourite instrumental music.

There are some vocals involved here, I hear you say, but voices used in an instrumental way, I would say. Non lyrical voices, let's say.

What strikes me listening back is the range of emotions in these tunes.

Romantic. Melancholy. Reverie. Delirious. Stoic. Noirish.

Beauty and strangeness.

Electronic. Stringed. Ambient.

Gothenburg. Tokyo. Dublin. Down. Philadelphia. Berlin. Tucson. Toronto.
