Coffee shop

Coffee shop

Post by scooter »

There seems to be an entire genre of music on YT related to coffee - or should I say two.

There's the noodly piano jazz variety, complete with ambient rain and clinking glassware: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c0_ejQQcrwI

The vague guitar-based noodling with a slow percussion-forward 4/4 behind it that one could potentially freestyle to (if one wasn't, yanno, white) :lol:, and some fake-analog hiss layered on: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=78mYkbfsXRM

And several weird attempts to combine the two: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hm2Syr7dm8k

It isn't bad as ambient goes, I guess. One of my favorite sandwich shops uses similar stuff in the background, and I have to admit, it does its job: pleasant without even threatening to come into the foreground. And there's just enough variety that it doesn't become too monotonous.

It does make me a bit wistful for just hanging out in coffee shops, though @CrazyCraftLady and I have a poor history when it comes to local cafés. Hell, the last one blew up... :cry:

For those of you who are not local, he's being literal there. The Riverside blew up.

One of the Baskin Robbins I frequented as a kid burned down. These things happen.

Seriously, there are a whole bunch of these videos, and it always seems to be raining. From the sound of this one, I think you're actually sitting at one of the outside tables.

Another collection: 7Beats DJs. This one seems to be well-curated. The set has some variation and texture. I am really liking what I hear from Thievery Corporation in particular...
