The Underground of Happiness - Singers & Vocals Mix, Sept 2018

The Underground of Happiness - Singers & Vocals Mix, Sept 2018

Playing tracks by

Cocteau Twins, Le Mystere des Voix Bulgares, Julianna Barwick, Todd Tobias & Chloe March, Landless and more.

Chart positions

This show was 12th in the global vocal chart and 96th in the global soul chart.

The human voice.

Singers. Vocalists. Solo. In groups. Harmonies. Dissonance.

The simple effect of massed voices.

A capella.
Sotto voce.
Screeches.
Swoops.
Croons.
Devotional.
An attack.
A glide.
A growl.
A swoon.
A yearning.

Jazz. Blues. Folk. Pop. Psych. Electro. Classical. Doo Wop. Whatever.

Sometimes singing just for the joy of it.
Sometimes a voice not technically great but still with something great about it.
Intonations are involved too. Maybe not even words. A voice below the brain. Giving breath to feelings.

Backing vocals. Sometimes so crucial and innovative they are the true heart of a song.
Backing vocals that don’t deserve to be called backing.

Some of my favourite singers and vocal arrangements and performances.

Enjoy.

Discovering new music that I actually like has been a challenge for several years. Sometimes I find a source of new inspiration. Discovering this new source is like finding gold during the California Gold Rush. The Undergroup of Happiness, which I got to know only recently, is such a source. Thank you.

cheers tim, glad you found me, and good to hear you're finding good things here. this mix has mostly non-new releases but check around (the recent best of 2018 might be a starting point) for more music released this year.

Perfect collection in so many ways at this time. Thank you so much

My pleasure and thank you for stopping by. Actually, as soon as I finished the mix I realised there will have to be a part 2, so many other important/great voices left out.
