Recommended by Dave Segal

There’s a ton of music around now that sounds like Oakland’s Astronauts, Etc.: smooth, hazy yacht-rock with subtle chillwave elements that sends a medium-cool frisson through you. This stuff triggers neither ecstatic highs nor grim lows, and that’s fine. A good chunk of your day, you just want some songs that console you with lightly sweetened melodies, mellow, sensitive-guy vox, and ambling beats that inspire a discreet head nod. And Astronauts, Etc.’s Living in Symbol album delivers those goods as nicely as anyone recording in a bedroom today, as you would expect from Toro y Moi’s former keyboardist. The Mattson 2 have the chutzpah to cover John Coltrane’s 1965 jazz pinnacle A Love Supreme—and the creativity to turn it into a psych-rock delicacy.
