Ambient music for late-night city strolls.

That 'midnight in the city' vibe, you know what I mean?
Burial nailed it with Untrue.
Music that feels like it came out of the city, but makes you feel detached from the people within it.

Re: Ambient music for late-night city strolls.

My kind of thread...

One of my favorite nocturnal albums: 'Distance' by Marconi Union. Though anything by MU works for that 'midnight in the city' vibe...

"Musically it was inspired by the experience of driving late at night through the city and the feeling of being insulated and safe in a potentially threatening environment."



This might do the trick for you as well: 'Human' by Hol Baumann.



Also: 'Dream Tempest' by 36.



And for dessert: 'Hotel Neon' by Hotel Neon. Though I experience this one more as an evening twilight/gray wintery afternoon album...

Re: Ambient music for late-night city strolls.

Marconi Union's name makes me think of all the good macaroni pasta I've eaten throughout my life. The combination of midnight-loneliness and fondness for cheesy pasta is an odd one.

Re: Ambient music for late-night city strolls.

The album "The City", by Vangelis, is a classic.one I've actually listened to while walking around at night..and it certainly worked for me. Great for just gazing out of a bus or train window at night ,as the world passes by..

Re: Ambient music for late-night city strolls.

I can't post any links yet but the late night city vibe has definitely been captured by Burial. Check out his self titled album, Untrue, and his song Fostercare. All of these are fine works of art that capture that exact vibe.

Also check out Asa's Arcane EP as it has a warmer but still atmospheric vibe to it perfect for the late night strolls.
