The problem is... I need new music to listen to! I feel like I've listened to every instrumental soundtrack I have a dozen times over the past few months. Don't get me wrong, I like the music I have, but there comes a point where even I get a little sick of Final Fantasy music. (I say, as I listen to a Final Fantasy playlist.) Seriously though, I keep getting to the end of 20-hour-long playlists and going "well I guess I'll listen to this one for the fifth time this month..."
So! What instrumental soundtracks do you guys like? Give some recs, drop some links, etc, etc. Doesn't have to be just soundtracks, either -- I listen to a lot of post-rock music too and it scratches the same itch for me. Classical music works too; heaven knows I've been meaning to properly get into it for years.
And, because I can't make a music thread without offering some recs of my own, here are some of the things I've been listening to a lot lately:
- Turnabout Jazz Soul & Turnabout Orchestra — One of my go-tos when I can't decide what to listen to. All of the Ace Attorney soundtracks are great (the piano album is especially good) but imo these are the best ones. Then again I like jazz
- Valkyrie Profile: Lenneth — Another go-to. One of the very few OSTs I actually have a physical copy of. Normally I would say I could listen to it forever, but this is the one I've put on like 5 times in the past month and I'm getting a bit fatigued. ...That's a lie, it's still great
- Battlestar Galactica — All the music for this show is beyond comparison. Like. Just listen to this okay. Lately I've been hooked on the piano album, mostly because BSG has a very broad soundscape and to hear it reduced to one instrument is very striking. Also I like piano ❤
- I could go on forever so just one more: Evergreen Refuge, so there's some post rock on here. OH SNAP, I didn't know there was a new album coming out!! I didn't expect to get such good news by making this thread ANYWAY. Evergreen Refuge is pretty unique; it's a one-man-band that makes single-track, hour-long albums. Occasionally it's two tracks. My personal favorite album is As The Fires Burn but tbh it's all pretty great.
sob i've been meaning to make this post for a month. i'm a
