A Very Long Flight album cover

This one was a special request, and I wanted to get it right because flying is the worst.

On a plane everyone’s crammed really close together, so I didn’t want to include songs that make me dance or make me emotional (crying on the plane makes everyone uncomfortable).  I looked for longer songs that were easy to listen to, but interesting, to help pass the time.  And they’re mostly peaceful feeling to ease stress. 

A Very Long Flight.

02- Silversun Pickups - Lazy Eye
03- Neutral Milk Hotel - the King of Carrot Flowers pt 1
04- Twin Sister - Stop
