Set the Mood: Be active

March 16, 2019

Life calls for activity. Whether you need to workout or clean the house, these albums should push you through your activity, maybe even set you in an energetic mood. The list contains albums that are immersive. Enjoy.

Run the Jewels 3

By Run the Jewels

Run the Jewels 3 is one of my go-to albums when I need to get moving. E-LP is an amazing producer, and his beats are killer on this album. Killer Mike and E-LP are a match made in heaven when it comes to rapping.

Yours, Dreamily

By The Arcs

An ode to psychedelic and blues rock, Yours, Dreamily is a peculiar album. Both chill and energetic, the album walks the line of driving and relaxing. The psych-rock and blues-rock are not the only influences thrown into the album’s odd stew. The album also incorporates Japanese and Mexican influences.

White Blood Cells

By The White Stripes

White Blood Cells is a staple rock album. It is energetic, loud and fuzzy. It is a great mix of garage and blues-rock.

Rubber Factory

By The Black Keys

Another blues inspired rock album, the same for White Blood Cells can be said here.

The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars

By David Bowie

David Bowie had the ability to craft stories with his albums. He could also take a mood and character and bring them to life through music. Ziggy Stardust is a great example of all of these abilities coming together. The album is immersive and classic.

The Money Store

By Death Grips

Death Grips is a grating and intense band. It is easy to see them as headache inducing. Their music is, however, full of energy. The beats are chaotic and fast. The lyrics are screamed and horrifying. It is a great way to scare yourself into getting something done.

This is Happening

By LCD Sound System

Indie and disco mixed into one album, This is Happening mixes deep lyrics with disco-dance beats. It is hard to listen to the album and not want to move.

Are You Experienced?

By The Jimi Hendrix Experience

Are You Experienced? is an all-time classic rock album. Hendrix is one of the best guitar players to ever live. The instrument and him were one entity when he played.

L.A. Woman

By The Doors

The last Doors album before Jim Morrison’s passing, it is heavy, and it is driving. It is perfect for a work out.

Good News for People that Love Bad News

By Modest Mouse

Chaotic, heavy and beautiful, Good News is a whirlwind of an album. It is perfect for a run or mowing the lawn. That is how I usually listen to it, anyway.
