I'm creating a mellow acoustic playlist, and looking for ideas on artists/songs to include.

Any suggestions would be welcome. happy.gif

Iron and Wine “Such Great Heights”
Sufjan Stevens “Should Have Known Better”
Villagers “Becoming A Jackal”
Bon Iver “Holocene”
Junip “Line Of Fire”
Ben Howard “End Of The Affair”
Bright Eyes “First Day Of My Life”
Damien Rice “9 Crimes”
Laura Marling “Cross Your Fingers / Crawled Out of the Sea”
Blackbud “Heartbeat”
Stateless “Bloodstream”
Grizzly Bear “Two Weeks”

Investigating the back catalogues of any of the artists above should give you even more suggestions - though Villagers went more electronic/pop on their later stuff - same goes for Grizzly Bear who went more rock on Shields.

this is my favourite singer-songwriter song for the last year, bit of a lost gem that wasn't a single and got a bit under the radar despite having a great melody and even better lyrics
