I recently stumbled upon an album by The National Pool called "Relaxation Tape for Solo Space Travel."

https://infraction.bandcamp.com/album/relaxation-tape-for-solo-space-travel

When I heard the song "Simpler Times" I knew that I had to buy the album and I knew that I had to make a mix with an retro, analog, space sound. So I set about collecting tunes that sound like they came from an old space science filmstrip. Some of the music is from current artists like Boards of Canada, Air, The Belbury Circle, Panabrite, Cafe Kaput, Moon Wiring Club, Schengen and Lunar Testing Lab. But mixed in there is also old electronic music from Eric Vann, Paul Hart, Alan Hawkshaw and Frank Comstock. Much of the old music has a sort of cheesy, retro vibe that I love in a mix like this.

Grab some Tang and kick back for this journey to the moon and beyond.

Tracklist is in the comments.

Thanks Dave...splendid as usual. I must admit though...I didn't make it past "Simpler Times" at first. I paused your mix while I went to listen to the whole album...but I did come back and continue listening to your goodness!
