If you run the type of business that looks for the deeper darker side of ambient, have a taste for melody driven indie folk or perhaps veer towards traditional instruments such as the lute or cello then be sure to check out our latest additions to the MoodMixes library.

Here’s our monthly roundup of some the best new music added during March.

Alternative Rock
We’re thrilled to see the return of Nathan Mathes to MoodMixes. Nathan’s new album, Recs is crammed full of impeccably crafted indie folk songs about life’s struggles and how to never give up. Easy Weather by The Bell Hours is another brilliant album that we’ve added to our alternative rock collection. Easy Weather is a sentimental take on modern rock and roll. Both albums are certainly worth adding to your business’s music collection.

If, however you are on the search for rock that’s a bit different then we recommend Swell by Hollywood Drunks. Swell is an energetic swirling vortex of rock, funk, rap and alternative brewed with elements of comedy.

Jazz
For restaurants or bars looking for background music that creates a cool vibe and exudes an air of sophistication then we highly recommend our latest addition to our Jazz library. Downtown Ride from Canadian composer Francois Couture is a fitting choice.

Ambient
Another option for background music is the aptly named album Solitude, from Julian Blackmore. Solitude consists of one 20-minute track that takes the listener on a journey into the depths of a dark ambient world.

Looking for music that’s a bit more upbeat? Then Summer 2014 by Kyven could be the answer. Positive and uplifting 80s pop with modern chops.

Classical
We’ve added a wide selection of albums to our classical section recently, particularly from lute, clarinet and cello musicians including James AkersRomualdo Barone and Alison Crum and Roy Marks.

Also new to our classical collection this month is the latest album from Daniel Estem. Daniel is our second ‘most licensed’ artist on MoodMixes. We are confident that Daniel’s new release, Bach Harpsichord Suites on Guitarwon’t disappoint and will prove to be just as popular as his previous works.

Electronica
In addition we also have a whole host of electronica new releases starting with Prisma by Philipp Weigl. Prisma oozes relaxation and eases the listener into a blissful, dreamlike state – a perfect choice for spas or simply meditating.

At the opposite end of our electronica spectrum is the faster paced, urban electronica cumbia album Exotica from Vate. Exotica would make a superb audio choice for any modern bar or club. We also love the latest release from Mike McGuillStult consists of confident, fresh new electronic sounds.

New Age
In our World category you’ll find The Lake, a new release by Hans Christian. The Lake produces an utterly captivating sound of New Age meets Indian cello. Following his magnificent debut album, Australian composer Luke Gartner-Brereton also returns to our World section with his latest release Ronroco Dreaming – a blend of classical tones with folk/Latin rhythms, an excellent choice for restaurant owners.
