Today we're listening to Marconi Union, an English trio that makes ambient music. Thanks to Bex for the recommendation. The band got started after two of the members met in a Manchester record shop almost 20 years ago. Since 2003 they've put out a dozen LPs of ambient/electronic music. In 2011 their track “Weightless” gained popular attention for its induction of a trance-like state in many of its listeners. The LP Weightless contains that track and ones similar to it: all excellent focus music. If you need more energy today, 2017's Tokyo+ uses the same synth droplets and chords but mixes in electronic drums. No vocals.
