Something I have wanted to share online for a while has been a playlist that I enjoy listening to as I play Minecraft.

The mood of Minecraft is very interesting for me – it’s enterprising, somber, and sometimes a bit lonely.  There are vast open spaces, and I try to look for tunes that heighten this feeling.  These songs don’t have lyrics, and have vaguely discernible beats…

I hope you’ll enjoy this collection of ambient and drone music the next time you play Minecraft!
