down-tempo, chill, trip-hop, electronica, instrumental music does something to the overwhelmed spirit.  instead of loud and ecstatic interruptions, soft sounds soothe and cast away every single little impurity. its the feeling of lying in your warm bed and dreaming, candlelight evenings with raindrops cascading and the delicacy of falling into a deep deep sleep, never ever wanting to wake up.

About The Author

“One glimpse is all it takes to tell you that Music Is Art is something special. You can start by judging this blog by its cover—it’s one of the best-designed, most aesthetically aware music blogs around—but there’s much more to it than just a pretty template. For one, Danielle, the “dreamer/designer” behind MIA, focuses not only on excellent music, but on art, photography and writing and how they all intersect and inform the music. By sharing the sounds and sights that inspire her, she’s inspiring a growing number of readers on a daily basis. By documenting artists’ creative processes, she’s, in the process, creating a pretty substantial, always-evolving work of art herself.” - Nerd Litter
