The votes are in.
The munchies have set in.
The winners of today’s Golden Discs voucher competition (theme: stonery music) is mildred st. meadowlark: who spliffingly posited:
“In the unlikely event I would smoke illegal plants I’d vouch for Playground Love by Air, as its mellow sound is just perfect for enjoying an enlightened state of mind. Also, it just sounds great.”
Paul: “In the unlikely event that I would smoke illegal plants, I would vouch for Eluvium (especially their album Copia) as background music because it was the music (and groups like them) that got me through some rough personal times between 2001 and 2007 and would keep me buzzing long after the ‘bud’ has left me.”
AnPreachan: “In the unlikely event that I would smoke illegal plants I would vouch for Panda Bear’s album Tomboy as background music because it is an insanely good album, full of electronic hymn’s like Benfica and Alsatian Darn and chilled out bangers (not sure if that is an oxymoron) like Afterburner.”
Pat Walsh: “In the unlikely event I would smoke illegal plants I would go for Just Dropped in to See What Condition My Condition Was In by Kenny Rogers & the First Edition as background music because both its lyrics & music are, like, far out, man.”
me: “In the unlikely event that I would smoke illegal plants I would vouch for Dopesmoker by Sleep. a 1hour single track Stoner Rock classic about a caravan of weed crossing the desert. its ambition, arguably not a word often used in relation to potsmokers, and its execution are amazing and it would seem like the most apposite and incredible aural background to the circumstance”
Liam Deliverance: “In the unlikely event that I would smoke illegal plants I would vouch for The Sabres of Paradise and Smokebelch II as background music because having being written in 1993 it is of a fine vintage for that style of music and indeed bookends a historical era in the club music movement. At 12 minutes long it is the ideal length for a rejuvenating mini-meditation at lunch or on the bus home or indeed could be viewed as being like a small nap, like the ones you take at 11am in work while appearing to be working on that important spreadsheet.”
